In this lesson, we will learn:

- What are the division rules for decimals and integers?
- How to divide decimals with integers: using mental math (with regrouping), base ten (block) models, and long division

- Numbers that are
**integers**can be defined as**positive**and**negative**whole numbers:

- What happens when we divide decimals with integers? It’s the same as multiplication!
- When dividing a decimal by a
**positive integer**, the answer will be.__positive__ - When dividing a decimal by a
**negative integer**, the answer will be.__negative__ - Negative decimals are also possible, so the full set of rules are:

- When dividing decimals with
**integers**, there are multiple ways to write a**division statement**, and it’s important to know where to put the**dividend**(the number being divided) and the**divisor**(the number you will divide by): - writing the statement from left to right (dividend ÷ divisor =), ex. 20 ÷ 5 =
- writing the statement in long division format (divisor)$\frac{}{dividend}$), ex. 5) $\overline{20}$
- writing the statement in the form of a fraction ($\large \frac{dividend}{divisor}$), ex. $\frac{20}{5}$
- When dividing decimals with
**integers**we can use three methods:
$\qquad$ 1. Using mental math (and regrouping)
- When using mental math, we use our division table knowledge and:
- Divide each place value by the
**integer** - If you are unable to divide, you will need to regroup to create a bigger number in the smaller neighbor place value (ex. 1 ones = 10 tenths, 1 tenths = 10 hundredths, 1 hundredth = 10 thousandths)
- We can also show decimal and integer division using
**base ten (block) models**. - We will deal with each place value separately when deciding how to represent the decimals.
- Then, decide whether your answer will be positive or negative. And, interpret the integer division as follows:
- i.e. ÷
**2**means out of every**two**blocks, keep one block - i.e. ÷
**3**means out of every**three**blocks, keep one block - i.e. ÷
**4**means out of every**four**blocks, keep one block - To divide decimals and integers using the
**standard algorithm**for:__long division__ - Write your division statement into the long division format and determine whether your answer will be positive or negative
- Line up the decimal place in the
**dividend**and the**quotient**(the answer); this will decide how many decimal places there will be in your answer

$\qquad$ 2. Using base ten (block models)

$\qquad$ 3. Using the long division algorithm

**Rewriting decimal-integer division statements and predicting answers**

Write each decimal and integer division statement intoand__long division format__. Then, state whether the answer will be__fraction format__.__positive or negative__a)60.25 ÷ -5 =b)309.18 ÷ 3 = ?c)48.36 ÷ -4 = ? - 2.
**Dividing decimals with integers without regrouping**

Use mental math to divide the following! First decide if your answer is positive or negative. Then divide each place value with the integer value.a)12.084 ÷ 4 =b)8.622 ÷ -2 =c)15.936 ÷ -3 = - 3.
**Dividing decimals with integers WITH regrouping**

Divide each decimal by each integer (regroup if necessary). Circle whether the answer will be positive or negative and rewrite the answer as a standard form decimal.a)b)c) - 4.
**Dividing decimals with integers by using base ten (block) models**

Use base ten (block) models to represent the division statement, then solve.a)5.68 ÷ 2 =b)6.39 ÷ -3 =c)8.42 ÷ -4 = - 5.
**Long division with decimals and integers**

Use the long division algorithm to divide each decimal with the integer given.a)6.7 ÷ - 4 =b)3.25 ÷ 5 =c)8.491 ÷ -7 =
