In our number system, digits can be placed to the left and right of a decimal point, to indicate numbers greater than one or less than one. 1.0 or 0.1. Decimals. The decimal point helps us to keep track of where the "ones" place is. . OR. It's placed just to the right of the ones place. .
1.0 or 0.1
The whole number portion of a decimal number are those digits to the left of the decimal place.
In the number 23.65, the whole number portion is 23.
In the number 0.024, the whole number portion is 0.
What are the decimal portions of these numbers?
As we move right from the decimal point, each number place is divided by 10.
Expanded Form of a Decimal Number
The expanded form of a decimal number is the number written as the sum of its whole number and decimal place values.
3 + 0.7 + 0.06 + 0.002 = 3.762
100 + 3 + 0.06 = 103.06
Hint #1: Remember to read the decimal point as "and" -- notice in the last two problems what a difference that makes!
Five hundred and forty-eight thousandths 500.048
Hint #2: When writing a decimal number that is less than 1, a zero is normally used in the ones place:
Five hundred forty-eight thousandths0.548
The number 14.504 is equal to 14.504000
Adding extra zeros to the right of a decimal number does not change its value
The number 14,505 ≠14,504,000
8.4 + 1.22 =
12.924 + 3.6 =
ALWAYS be sure to stack the numbers so the decimals stay above one another!!!
10.66 – 5.22 =
18.2 - 6.008 =
Add extra 0's, using the fact that 18.2 = 18.200
If not using a calculator, count the number of decimal places in all terms to be multiplied
The answer should contain that many decimal places.
