Rounding Decimals .3272727 .337272 .33 Step 1. Identify the place
value of the digit you want to round Step 3. Drop all digits to the right of the identified digit Step 2. Identify the digit to the right. If 5 or more, increase the identified digit by 1. If less than 5 do not change .33

Rounding Decimals Round to nearest dollar: \$166.39 \$166
Round to nearest cent: \$1, \$1,196.89 Round to nearest hundredth: \$ \$38.56 Round to nearest thousandth: \$1, \$1,

Converting Decimal Fractions to Decimals
2 Steps 1. Count the number of zeros in the denominator. 2. Place the numerator of the decimal fraction to the right of the decimal point the same number of places as you have zeros in the denominator. Do not go over the total number of denominator zeros.

Adding Decimals Add: 4 + 7.3 + 36.139 + .0007 + 8.22 4.0000 7.3000
.0007 8.2200

Subtracting Decimals Subtract: 45.300 30.027

Multiplying Decimals 8.52 (2 decimal places) x 6.7 (1 decimal places)
57084 57.084 5 decimal places 3776 .03776 Need to add zero 2.36 x

Dividing Decimals Step 1. Make the divisor a whole number by moving the decimal point to the right Step 2. Move the decimal point in the dividend to the right the same number of places as in step 1. If there are not enough places, add zeros to the right of the dividend. Step 3. Place the decimal point in the quotient above the new decimal point in the dividend. Divide as usual. Example 13.12 25 78 75 30 50

Decimals Applications in Foreign Currency
The Wall Street Journal clip shows in China the price of Microsoft Office was reduced to 199 yuan from an original price of 699 yuan. Using the currencies table lets us see what the original as well as sales price is in U.S. dollars. In the table on page 74 1 yuan equals \$ To find the original selling price you multiply the number of yuan (699) times \$.1463. 699 yuan x \$.1463 = \$102.26 The original selling price in U.S. Dollars is \$ To find the new selling price in U.S. dollars, you multiply the number of yuan 199 times \$ The new selling price in U.S. dollars is \$29.11. \$199 x \$.1463 = \$29.11 Table factor from currency table on page 74 Check \$29.11 x = yuan Each 1 equal yuan

Shortcuts for Multiples of 10
Multiplication Count the zeros in the multiplier Move the decimal point the same number of spaces to the right 6890 6.89 x 1000 68.9 6.89 x 10 6.89 x 100 689

Shortcuts for Multiples of 10
Division Count the zeros in the divisor Move the decimal point the same number of spaces to the left .00689 .689 6.89 / 1000 6.89 / 10 6.89 / 100 .0689
