Dividing Decimals by Whole Numbers

Students learn to divide a decimal by a whole number in the same way that one would divide a whole number by a whole number (using long division). However, at the end of the problem, the decimal point is brought straight up from the decimal that is inside the division symbol to the answer that is written on top of the division symbol.
