Step 3: Place the decimal point in the quotient directly above the decimal point in the dividend.

Step 4: Divide the numbers as whole numbers are divided.

Calculation:

Consider the numbers,

.0462.2

Now, first make the divisor a whole number by moving the decimal point to the right and also move the decimal point same number of places in the dividend,
