Introduction to Decimals
Chapter 1 / Whole Numbers and Introduction to Algebra Section 5.1 Introduction to Decimals

Chapter 1 / Whole Numbers and Introduction to Algebra
Like fractional notation, decimal notation is used to denote a part of a whole. Numbers written in decimal notation are called decimal numbers, or simply decimals. The decimal has three parts. 16.743 Whole- number part Decimal part Decimal point

The position of each digit in a number determines its place value.
hundred-thousandths hundreds tens tenths hundredths thousandths ten-thousandths ones 1 10 1 1000 1 100,000 Place Value 100 10 1 1 100 1 10,000 decimal point

of the value of the place to its left.
Notice that the value of each place is of the value of the place to its left. 1 10 Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed
16.734 The digit 3 is in the hundredths place, so its value is 3 hundredths or 3 100 Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

Writing (or Reading) a Decimal in Words
Chapter 1 / Whole Numbers and Introduction to Algebra Writing (or Reading) a Decimal in Words Step 1. Write the whole-number part in words. Step 2. Write “and” for the decimal point. Step 3. Write the decimal part in words as though it were a whole number, followed by the place value of the last digit. Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

Writing a Decimal in Words
Write the decimal in words. whole-number part decimal part one hundred forty-three and fifty-six thousandths Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

Writing Decimals in Standard Form
A decimal written in words can be written in standard form by reversing the procedure. Write one hundred six and five hundredths in standard form. one hundred six and five hundredths whole-number part decimal decimal part 5 must be in the hundredths place 106 . 05

three and fifty-four thousandths is 3.054 Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed
Helpful Hint When writing a decimal from words to decimal notation, make sure the last digit is in the correct place by inserting 0s after the decimal point if necessary. For example, three and fifty-four thousandths is 3.054 thousandths place Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

Chapter 1 / Whole Numbers and Introduction to Algebra
Writing Decimals as Fractions Once you master writing and reading decimals correctly, then you write a decimal as a fraction using the fractions associated with the words you use when you read it. 0.9 is read “nine tenths” and written as a fraction as Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed
twenty-one hundredths and written as a fraction as 0.21 is read as 21 100 0.011 is read as eleven thousandths and written as a fraction as 11 1000 Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

37 100 . = 029 29 1000 . = 2 decimal places 2 zeros 3 decimal places 3 zeros Notice that the number of decimal places in a decimal number is the same as the number of zeros in the denominator of the equivalent fraction. We can use this fact to write decimals as fractions.

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed
Comparing Decimals One way to compare decimals is to compare their graphs on a number line. Recall that for any two numbers on a number line, the number to the left is smaller and the number to the right is larger. To compare 0.3 and 0.7 look at their graphs. 0.3 0.7 1 0.3 < 0.7 or > 0.3 3 10 7 10 Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

Chapter 1 / Whole Numbers and Introduction to Algebra
Comparing decimals by comparing their graphs on a number line can be time consuming, so we compare the size of decimals by comparing digits in corresponding places. Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

Comparing Two Positive Decimals
Chapter 1 / Whole Numbers and Introduction to Algebra Comparing Two Positive Decimals Compare digits in the same places from left to right. When two digits are not equal, the number with the larger digit is the larger decimal. If necessary, insert 0s after the last digit to the right of the decimal point to continue comparing. Compare hundredths place digits 35.638 35.657 3 < 5 35.638 < 35.657 Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

Chapter 1 / Whole Numbers and Introduction to Algebra
Helpful Hint For any decimal, writing 0s after the last digit to the right of the decimal point does not change the value of the number. 8.5 = 8.50 = 8.500, and so on When a whole number is written as a decimal, the decimal point is placed to the right of the ones digit. 15 = = 15.00, and so on Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

Chapter 1 / Whole Numbers and Introduction to Algebra
Rounding Decimals We round the decimal part of a decimal number in nearly the same way as we round whole numbers. The only difference is that we drop digits to the right of the rounding place, instead of replacing these digits by 0s. For example, rounded to the nearest hundredth is 63.78 Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

Rounding Decimals To a Place Value to the Right of the Decimal Point
Chapter 1 / Whole Numbers and Introduction to Algebra Rounding Decimals To a Place Value to the Right of the Decimal Point Step 1. Locate the digit to the right of the given place value. Step 2. If this digit is 5 or greater, add 1 to the digit in the given place value and drop all digits to the right. If this digit is less than 5, drop all digits to the right of the given place. Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

Rounding Decimals to a Place Value
Round to the nearest tenth. Locate the digit to the right of the tenths place. tenths place digit to the right Since the digit to the right is less than 5, drop it and all digits to its right. rounded to the nearest tenths is 326.4 Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

Chapter 1 / Whole Numbers and Introduction to Algebra Section 5.2 Adding and Subtracting Decimals 21

Chapter 1 / Whole Numbers and Introduction to Algebra Adding or Subtracting Decimals Step 1. Write the decimals so that the decimal points line up vertically. Step 2. Add or subtract as for whole numbers. Step 3. Place the decimal point in the sum or difference so that it lines up vertically with the decimal points in the problem. 22 Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed 22

Helpful Hint Recall that 0s may be inserted to the right of the decimal point after the last digit without changing the value of the decimal. This may be used to help line up place values when adding or subtracting decimals. becomes two 0s inserted 71.74 23

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed

Dividing Decimals Section 5.4
Chapter 1 / Whole Numbers and Introduction to Algebra Section 5.4 Dividing Decimals 41

Division of decimal numbers is similar to division of whole numbers.
The only difference is the placement of a decimal point in the quotient. If the divisor is a whole number, divide as for whole numbers; then place the decimal point in the quotient directly above the decimal point in the dividend. 8 4 quotient divisor 63 52.92 dividend 2 5 2 -2 52 42

Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed
If the divisor is not a whole number, we need to move the decimal point to the right until the divisor is a whole number before we divide. divisor 6 3 52 92 . dividend 63 529 2 . 8 4 63 52 9.2 - 504 25 2 -252 43 Martin-Gay, Prealgebra, 5ed
