...= Vu'jV = 34-567. Similarly, to divide a decimal by any power of 10, wo must move the decimal point **as many places to the left as there are ciphers in the divisor.** If there are more ciphers in the divissr than there are places in the decimal, we must prefix a sufficient... | |

...decimal by a decimal number, such as 10, 100, 1000, &c. is performed by merely moving the decimal point **as many places to the left as there are ciphers in the** decimal number. If there are not enough places in the dividend to allow of this, annex ciphers to the... | |

...number is to be divided by 10, 100, 1000, &c., the division is made by removing* the decimal point **as many places to the left as there are ciphers in the divisor** ; and if there be not so many figures on the left ipf the decimal point, the deficiency must be supplied... | |

...annexed, is used as a divisor, the quotient may be represented by merely shifting the decimal point of **the dividend as many places to the left as there are ciphers in the divisor.** Thus, 860 -f. 100 = 860-0 -r- 100 = 8-6; 45 -f- 1000 = 45-0 4- 1000 = -045; 23-47 4- 10000 = -002347.... | |
