Did you know that when you multiply and divide a decimal by 10, 100 and 1000, the place value of the digits either increases or decreases?

  • When multiplying, the digits move to the left since the number gets bigger.
  • When dividing, the digits move to the right since the number gets smaller.

It is important to remember that the decimal point does not move.

Lesson 1: Multiply and divide by 10 100 and 1000.
