Dividing and Multiplying Decimals

I think some students look at questions involving decimals with fear. It sometimes feels that they haven’t realised that the rules of multiplication of whole numbers are the same when dealing with decimals.

With division, it surprises me when students can deal with a fraction that has a decimal because they can create an equivalent fraction that has whole numbers but if its written with an obelus they start working with long division.

Anyway, heres a few questions i’m using in class to practice multiplying and dividing decimals.
