Example 3: 47÷ 9=?
Step 1: We enter the ten’s place digit as it is
Ten’s place digit=4
Step 2: We get the unit’s place digit by adding ten’s place digit and unit’s place digit
4+7=11.
Since it is a 2 digit number, add both numbers that is 1 + 1 to get unit’s place digit. We get, unit place digit=1+1=2
Also carry forward the ten’s place digit to step 1
Step 3: Add carry forward(1) from step 2 to original ten’s place digit of given number. we get, ten’s place digit= 4 + 1=5
Now add a decimal point between the unit’s place digit and the ten’s place digit to arrive at the answer
Ans          47÷ 9 =5.2
