12 Dividing decimal numbers by moving the decimal point

Doing division when decimal numbers are involved is the same as doing divisions involving whole numbers, with a few extra steps to take care of the decimal point.

Either the number you are dividing into or the number you are dividing by, or both of them, may be a whole number or a decimal number. So, for example, you might want to do the following divisions:

  • Example 1: 49.26457 ÷ 8
  • Example 2: 2.601 ÷ 1.22
  • Example 3: 678 ÷ 27.3

3.5 Maths in archaeology

In several different parts of the world, footprints from prehistoric human civilisations have been found preserved in either sand or volcanic ash. From these tracks it is possible to measure the foot length and the length of the stride. These measurements can be used to estimate both the height of the person who made the footprint and also whether the person was walking or running by using the following three formulas:

1.3 Wider aspects of business and company law

So far, we have touched on just a few of the many aspects of the law which relates to companies and other businesses. It will be useful at this point to consider how these areas fit into some wider issues raised by the study of law in general. For example:

  • The law relating to businesses such as companies and partnerships regulates important areas of daily life, and allows you to see that there is a connection between the law and the way in which people

1.5.3 Labelling

Official language about informal carers is at variance with the way we normally talk about family life. How many children or young people who care – for parents or other relatives – would spontaneously label themselves a ‘young carer’? How many parents would describe their son or daughter in this way? How many people who frame census questions would have thought of including a question to find out, until ‘young carer’ became a category like ‘disability’ or ‘age’ that censu

3.3 Care: a contested word

You have seen that the words used to label people who are seen as needing care can stigmatise them. By picking them out as unlike ‘normal’ people, people who do not need care, they can feel belittled, de-humanised and deprived of respect. But it is not just the labels like ‘mentally handicapped’, ‘lunatic’ or ‘mentally ill’ that are at issue. ‘Care’ as a word is itself under attack:

2.3.1 Cylinder

The simplest example of a paper-and-glue construction is to make a rectangle into a cylinder by gluing together two opposite edges. We take a closed rectangle ABB' A' in the plane and identify the opposite edges AB and A'B', as shown in Figure 27. This means that:

Evidence-based practice in science education: outcomes and implications
The aim of the Evidence-based Practice in Science Education (EPSE) Network was to explore the interface between science education researchers and practitioners, particularly teachers, to understand better what might be involved in moving school science education towards forms of practice that are more ‘evidence-based’. The Network undertook four inter-related projects: Project 1: Exploring the impact on teachers’ practices, and student learning, of providing diagnostic tools informed by

The Lost Art of Finding Our Way
http://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674072824 Long before GPS, Google Earth, and global transit, humans traveled vast distances using only environmental clues and simple instruments. In his new book, THE LOST ART OF FINDING OUT WAY, John Huth asks what is lost when modern technology substitutes for our innate capacity to find our way. Encyclopedic in breadth, weaving together astronomy, meteorology, oceanography, and ethnography, the book puts us in the shoes, ships, and sleds of ear
