Students must be able to solve for quotients of decimal numbers. These numbers may have dividends with as many as four digits. The divisors will be whole numbers with one or two digits. They will solve for the quotients using strategies and algorithms, including the standard algorithm.
Dr. Allison just approved a purchase order for the school library. The school will pay $388.50 for 21 new books. If each book costs the same amount, what is the price of one book? How do you know?

5.3 Number and operations. The student applies mathematical process standards to develop and use strategies and methods for positive rational number computations in order to solve problems with efficiency and accuracy. The student is expected to:
(G) solve for quotients of decimals to the hundredths, up to four-digit dividends and two-digit whole number divisors, using strategies and algorithms, including the standard algorithm
