Dividing a two digit number by 9 using the method taught to us in our school days may take a minute. However, by applying the shortcut to divide 2 digit by 9 you can mentally calculate the answer within seconds.

## Shortcut to divide 2 digit by 9 steps

Let us see the steps now

**Step 1:**Enter the ten’s digit of the number as it is.

**Step 2:**To get the unit’s place digit add the ten’s place digit number and Unit’s place digit number and put the decimal point after the ten’s place digit.

## Examples

Let us consider an example

**Example 1:**23÷ 9=?

**Step 1:**We enter the ten’s place digit as it is

Ten’s place digit=2

**Step 2:**We get the unit’s place digit by adding ten’s place digit and unit’s place digit

2+3=5

Unit’s place digit=5

Now add a decimal point between the unit’s place digit and the ten’s place digit to arrive at the answer

**Ans 23÷ 9 =2.5**

**Example 2:**32÷ 9=?

**Step 1:**We enter the ten’s place digit as it is

Ten’s place digit=3

**Step 2:**We get the unit’s place digit by adding ten’s place digit and unit’s place digit

3+2=5

Unit’s place digit=5

Now add a decimal point between the unit’s place digit and the ten’s place digit to arrive at the answer

**Ans 32÷ 9 =3.5**

**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**
