This Demonstration shows how to do step-by-step decimal division.
1. Write the original problem.
2. Remove the decimal points from the original numbers and divide.
3. Round the two original numbers and divide them to get a rough approximation of the final answer.
4. Place the decimal point into the answer from step 2 based on step 3.
