4.  Distinguish between the dividend and the divisor, and find the
4.  quotient.

4.  a)  .0005 ÷ .05 = .01             b)  .05 ÷ .0005 = 100

5.  c)  1.6 ÷ 16 = .1                 d)  16 ÷ 1.6 = 10

5.  a)  What number times 5 is 44?   44 ÷ 5 = 8.8

5.  b)  What number times .08 is .004?   .004 ÷ .08 = .05
