Unit 4, Lesson 31

Divide decimal dividends by non‐unit decimal divisors.

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students continue understanding division of decimals by combining strategies. Students rewrite decimals as fractions. For example, 34.8 ÷ 0.6 = 34.8/0.6. Then they multiply by a fraction equal to 1 to get a whole number denominator, while reasoning to get numbers that are easier to compute. For example, 34.8/0.6 x 10/10 = 348/6. Then they estimate a reasonable answer and use long division to get the final answer.
