...•= AVoVs x 100 = Vu'jV = 34-567. Similarly, to divide a decimal by any power of 10, wo must move **the decimal point as many places to the left as there are** ciphers in the divisor. If there are more ciphers in the divissr than there are places in the decimal,... | |

...division of a decimal by a decimal number, such as 10, 100, 1000, &c. is performed by merely moving **the decimal point as many places to the left as there are** ciphers in the decimal number. If there are not enough places in the dividend to allow of this, annex... | |
