How do you divide circumference by 3.14 if theres a decimal?

When dividing by decimals, the easiest way to do this is to modify the question so that there is no longer a decimal in the divisor. Just as with equivalent fractions, if we multiply the dividend and the divisor by the same number, we do not actually change the question. For example, consider 1 divided by 0.2 (ie 1 / 0.2) Start by multiplying the dividend and the divisor by 10 to remove the decimal in the divisor. This changes the problem to 10 / 2. We can now evaluate the division to give 10/2=5. In your specific case where you want to divide by 3.14, you would times both the dividend and the divisor by 100 to remove the decimal in the divisor. For example 6.28 / 3.14 = 628 / 314 = 2

Why does moving the decimal point in the divisor and the dividend when dividing by a decimal work?

Moving the decimal point one place to the right is the same as multiplying both, he numerator and the denominator by 10. That is, you are effectively multiplying by 10/10 which equals 1. And since multiplication by 1 does not change the result, it is OK to do that. Similarly, moving two palces to the right is multiplying by 100/100. Similarly moving left.

Why should you multiply the divisor and the dividend by the same power of ten?

Because not to do so would change the relationship between them 3.45/12.3 = 345/1230 = 0.2805 (approx) If you multiplied the dividend by 100 and the divisor by ten (doing just enoguh to remove the decimal places) then the relationship (the ratio) changes 345/ 123 = 2.8049 (approx)

What an Operation to change a ratio to a decimal?

It is dividing the dividend by the divisor untilthere is no remainder; orthe digits in the quotient start repeating; oryou have reached a satisfactory degree of accuracy.The last bullet is because some fractions will not start repeating for a long time. Most primes will take as many digits as the prime itself: for example, 1/29 has a repeating string which is 29-digits long.
