From: Owen To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2006090715:00:38 Subject: Re: math 4th grade Dear Gabriela: You asked: “How do you find the missing number on a decimal something like this: 84/100=0.?4 can you help me on this? Thank you from now. Because I forget how to do it and need to explain to my son.” The answer is: When you divide by 10 you move the decimal point one place to the left. Whey you divide by 100 you move the decimal point two places to the left. your answer would be 0.84 because you move the decimal point two places left. The slash means to divide so 84 divided by 100 is 0.84. You can type this into your calculator to test the answer. You can get free help from the DotMath for kids web site at http://dotmath.tripod.com/ If you click on this address with your mouse it will take you there. Owen
