Quotient of division of a whole number by a decimal number is obtained by placing number of zeroes in dividend for each decimal place digit of divisor. Division of 4565 by 3

one zero has been placed in dividend for one decimal place of divisor.

Quotient of division of a decimal number by a whole number is obtained by placing number of zero for each place digit of dividend in divisor.

Division of 3.5 by a whole number one zero has been placed in divisor for one decimal place of dividend.

**Quotient of Division of a Decimal Number by a Decimal Number is Obtained by the following steps: **

**Step 1:** Decimal point of the divisor is moved to right until it becomes a whole number.

**Step 2: ** Decimal point of the dividend is moved to right as same as the number of places have been moved in divisor.

**Step 3:** Multiply both divisor and dividend by a number to get whole numbers if necessary.

**Step 4:** Put decimal point in the quotient by counting total number of decimal places for both dividend and divisor as shown below:
