**OK, so WHY does this work?**

**Let's write the last
problem as a fraction:**

**Can we multiply this
fraction by 1 and not change its value? Yep!**

**How about if we
multiply by a magic 1?**

**YEP!**

**So, just moving both
decimals to the right**

**is the
same as multiplying by a magic 1!**

**Here's another one:**

**Divide
7.5 by
.25**

**Set it up...**

**Hey, there aren't even
any decimals left in this one!**

**Go for it:**

**Always remember what
division means and think about your answers!**

**This problem means:**

**How
many .25's are there in
7.5?
There are 30.**

**Think
about it! Does this answer make sense?**
