(2)

Move the decimal point in the divisor as many places to the right as is

necessary to make it a whole number:

* (3)

Move the decimal point in the dividend the same number of places to

the right:

***NOTE: **It took a three decimal place move to make the divisor (0.625) a whole

number in step 2. Because the decimal had to be moved three places to

make the divisor a whole number, the decimal in the dividend must also be

moved three places to the right.

(4)

Place the decimal in the answer directly above the decimal in the

dividend and complete the division:
