Well done for all of your work with decimals! Today we are going to go over division. To divide something is to split something into equal parts. You can use circles to show this way. Have a look at the example below:

12 divided by 3 = 4 12 has been divided into 3 circles with each one getting 4 each.

Have a go at the questions below:

1) 16 divided by 4

2) 18 divided by 9

3) 24 divided by 6

4) 12 divided by 4

5) 20 divided by 5

6) 22 divided by 2

7) 21 divided by 7

## Fire Dragons and Number Ninjas

Today we will be looking at the relationship between fractions and decimals. In this square there are 100 squares. If 4 squares are coloured in, this is 4/100 as a fraction. As a decimal, this is 0.04. If 40 squares are coloured in, this is 40/100 as a fraction and 0.4 as a decimal. This is an important point to remember! Please show what the following grids represent in both fractions and decimals.   ## Top Banaynays and Chunky Monkeys    Top
