If you mean 18.88 divided by 4 then the quotient is 4.72 and the first digit of 4 is in the ones or units place
It does not have to be. 864/2 = 432. The first digit of the quotient is not in the tens place.
You look at the place value.
In the highest place value.
You can use estimation and place value to help you figure out where to place the first digit.
Yes, that's true.
An estimation, like 600 divided by 6, will show you that the answer should be around 100, not 10 or 1000.
425 is less than 100*9 = 900 so the first digit of the quotient cannot be in the hundreds (or higher) place. 425 is greater than (or equal to) 10*9 = 90 so the first digit of the quotient cannot be in the units (or lower) place. That only leaves the tens place.
by rounding 624 down to 600, you know that 600 divided by 6 is 100, so the first digit will probably be a 1
The tenth place because the quotient is .682 and the six is in the tens place which represents 6/10.
If you were doing it as a long division (in standard layout) then above the 6 - just after the decimal point.
44/22 = 2 so the decimal point should be placed after the first digit (which is a 1).
41)3972...since 41>39 you won't have the first digit of the quotient in the hundreds place. it will be in the tens place instead. if the first two digits were 41 or greater then you would. hope that helps.
