Maths Decimals

How do I know what kind of decimal it is? We know the name of a decimal by counting how many places there are to the right of the decimal point. Number of PlacesDecimal NameExample 1tenths0.7 2hundredths0.05 3thousandths0.016

What are mixed decimals?  Mixed decimals are numbers with both whole numbers and decimals.  We know the name of a whole number by it’s place to the left of the decimal point.  In the number 128.765, 1 is in the hundreds place, 2 is in the tens place, 8 is in the ones place, 7 is in the tenths place, 6 is in the hundredths place, and 5 is in the thousandths place

How do you read decimals?  To read a decimal correctly, first find the decimal point.  Whole numbers are to the left of the decimal point; any numbers to the right of a decimal point form a decimal fraction.  Say “point” for the decimal point  The decimal 2164.511 is read as “two thousand, one hundred sixty-four point five hundred and eleven thousandths”

Zeros after the decimal point  Writing extra zeros after the decimal point does not change the value!  The decimals 0.2, 0.20, and 0.200 are equivalent decimals

Here are some practice problems. Let’s do them together. Let’s help each other understand. So… Open your Maths Notebook. Practice
