## Dividing A 2- Or 3-digit Number By 33 1/3

 Dividing A 2- Or 3-digit Number By 33 1/3Dividing a 2- or 3-digit number by 33 1/3 Select a 2-digit number (progress to larger ones). Multiply it by 3. Move the decimal point 2 places to the left.    Example: The 2-digit number chosen to divide by 33 1/3 is 46. Multiply by 3: 3 × 46 = 3(40 + 6) = 120 + 18 = 138 Move the decimal point 2 places to the left: 1.38 So 46 divided by 33 1/3 = 1.38. (If you divide by 33.3 using a calculator, you will not get the exact answer.)    See the pattern? If the 3-digit number chosen to divide by 33 1/3 is 650: Multiply by 3: 3 × (600 + 50) = 1800 + 150 = 1950 Move the decimal point 2 places to the left: 19.50 So 650 divided by 33 1/3 = 19.5. Practice multiplying left to right and this procedure will become an easy one - and you will get exact answers, too.
