# 3. (i) 43.15 ÷ 5 = ?;      (ii) 82.44 ÷ 6 = ?

P Pankaj Sanodiya

As we know, dividing by a number is equivalent to multiplying by the reciprocal of that number. So

(i) 43.15 ÷ 5

$43.15\div5=\frac{4315}{100}\div5=\frac{4315}{100}\times\frac{1}{5}=\frac{863}{100}=8.63$

(ii) 82.44 ÷ 6

$82.44\div6=\frac{8244}{100}\div6=\frac{8244}{100}\times\frac{1}{6}=\frac{2374}{100}=23.74$
