1 x 100 =100

2 x 100 =200.

3x100=300.

II am sure you can multiply harder ones.

Try

24 x 1000

If you think it is 24,000 you are correct.

Now watch what happens when you start

with a decimal not at the end but somewhere else, like in the middle

13.56 x 100 = 1356. Multiplying by 100 simply means to increase the value of a number by moving the decimal two places to the right.

So if multiplying moves the decimal to the

right, division will move it to____________

Try some easy ones.

34 divided by 10 =3.4

34 divided by 100 = 0.34

34 divided by 1000 =0.034

Notice as soon as there are no ones you indicate that with a 0.

Oh , By the way, you just did metric work!

Multiplying or dividing by 10's 100's or 1000's is a matter of finding out where the decimal point needs to go. All numbers have a decimal point. You know this when you number your paper.......

Now multiply by 10 and watch what happens:

1 x 10 =10.

2 x 10 =20.

3 x 10 =30

Try 100
