(1.057023 * (10^14)) / 3.26 = 3.24240184 × 10^13
Shouldn't any number decrease when I divide by 3.26? Why does it increase?

When you divide a number by a number greater than 1, you are essentially breaking it into smaller parts. This means that each part is now a fraction of the original number, making the result larger than the original number.
Sure! Let's say we have the number 10 and we divide it by 2. This means we are dividing it into 2 parts. 10 divided by 2 is equal to 5, which is larger than the original number 10.
Division is essentially breaking a number into smaller parts. This is similar to how fractions represent a part of a whole. When you divide by a number greater than 1, you are creating a fraction of the original number.
Yes, dividing by a number greater than 1 will always result in a larger number. This is because the original number is being broken into smaller parts, making each part a fraction of the original number.
In real-world situations, dividing by a number greater than 1 can represent things like splitting a pizza into more slices or sharing a certain amount of money with more people. In both cases, the result is a larger number because the original amount is being divided into smaller parts.
