Dividing by 5

Dividing a large number by five is actually very simple. All you do is multiply by 2 and move the decimal point:

1. 195 &divide; 5

Step 1: 195 x 2 = 390

Step 2: Move the decimal point one place backward – 39.0

2. 2978 &divide; 5

Step 1: 2978 x 2 = 5956

Step 2: 595.6

So what we are doing is doubling the given number and then dividing it by 10.
