There are EIGHT DIGITS — DISPLAY FILLED! BE AWARE OF POSSIBLE APPROXIMATIONS.
We can check for a possible approximation in the following way. Since the division $\stackrel{3}{4\overline{)12}}$ can be checked by multiplying 4 and 3, we can check our division by performing the multiplication
$\underset{\text{places}}{\underset{\text{3 decimal}}{\underbrace{4.113}}}\times \underset{\text{places}}{\underset{\text{7 decimal}}{\underbrace{0.1997373}}}$
This multiplication produces $3+7=\text{10}$ decimal digits. But our suspected quotient contains only 8 decimal digits. We conclude that the answer is an approximation. Then, rounding to five decimal places, we get 0.19974.
Find each quotient using a calculator. If the result is an approximation, round to four decimal places.

3.5197645 is an approximate result. Rounding to four decimal places, we get 3.5198
In problems 4 and 5 of [link] , we found the decimal representations of $\mathrm{8,}\text{162}\text{.}\text{41}\xf7\text{10}$ and $\mathrm{8,}\text{162}\text{.}\text{41}\xf7\text{100}$ . Let's look at each of these again and then, from these observations, make a general statement regarding division of a decimal number by a power of 10.
$\begin{array}{c}\hfill 816.241\\ \hfill 10\overline{)8162.410}\\ \hfill \underline{80}\\ \hfill 16\\ \hfill \underline{10}\\ \hfill 62\\ \hfill \underline{60}\\ \hfill 24\\ \hfill \underline{20}\\ \hfill 41\\ \hfill \underline{40}\\ \hfill 10\\ \hfill \underline{10}\\ \hfill 0\end{array}$
Thus, $\mathrm{8,}\text{162}\text{.}\text{41}\xf7\text{10}=\text{816}\text{.}\text{241}$ .
Notice that the divisor 10 is composed of one 0 and that the quotient 816.241 can be obtained from the dividend 8,162.41 by moving the decimal point one place to the left.
$\begin{array}{c}\hfill 81.6241\\ \hfill 100\overline{)8162.4100}\\ \hfill \underline{800}\\ \hfill 162\\ \hfill \underline{100}\\ \hfill 624\\ \hfill \underline{600}\\ \hfill 241\\ \hfill \underline{200}\\ \hfill 410\\ \hfill \underline{400}\\ \hfill 100\\ \hfill \underline{100}\\ \hfill 0\end{array}$
Thus, $\mathrm{8,}\text{162}\text{.}\text{41}\xf7\text{100}=\text{81}\text{.}\text{6241}$ .
Notice that the divisor 100 is composed of two 0's and that the quotient 81.6241 can be obtained from the dividend by moving the decimal point two places to the left.
Using these observations, we can suggest the following method for dividing decimal numbers by powers of 10.
Find each quotient.
$\mathrm{9,}\text{248}\text{.}6\xf7\text{100}$
Since there are 2 zeros in this power of 10, we move the decimal point 2 places to the left.
$3\text{.}\text{28}\xf7\text{10},\text{000}$
Since there are 4 zeros in this power of 10, we move the decimal point 4 places to the left. To do so, we need to add three zeros.
