Dividing Decimals, An Easy Two-Step Process

    There are simple steps to follow when attempting to divide decimal numbers.

    First, move the decimal point in the "dividend" to the "right" in order to create a whole number.
    Second, move the decimal point in the "divisor" the same number of spaces as the "dividend".
    Third, zeros may need to be added to accomplish this task.

    Example: 0.05 (dividend) / 0.01 (divisor) = 5
