### Multiplying Decimals

What happened to my line?!?!?!?!??!

Multiplying Fractions:Is the product ALWAYS smaller than the fractions (factors)? Meaning, is this true for all fractions?It depends on the factors!
Do NOT line up the decimals!

The decimal places are growing and growing!

Why is this happening?
• We are multiplying hundredths times tenths:
• So, the answer must be in thousandths!
Let’s see that again:

hundredths

times

tenths =

thousandths!

The other multiplication stuff works like it always did.

Multiplying Fractions:

Multiplying Decimals:

If one of the factors (fractions OR decimals) is greater than 1 than the product will be bigger than one of the fractions/decimals? If BOTH are bigger than 1 than the product will be bigger!!

• Trick:
• Count up the place values after the decimal point in the problem.
• If there are 3 place values after the decimal points in the factors then your answer needs to be in the thousandths place…needs 3 decimal places.
