Lesson 3: Decimals in written form

# Decimals in written form (hundredths)

To write a decimal in word form, start by writing out the whole number portion. Next, express the decimal portion as a fraction of hundredths. For clarity, it's often helpful to simplify multiple terms (such as "one tenth and five hundredths") into a single fraction (such as "fifteen hundredths").

• whats a good way to rember to go like 10 over 100 after the decimal?

• I always remember by thinking of everything to the right of the decimal as the same thing as the normal place values, except skipping the "ones" place and going in the other direction.
• when the guy wrote 63.15 in word form, he said: sixty-three and fifteen hundredths. Though I'm not saying he's wrong or anything, but instead of saying "and" do you say "point"? So sixty-three point fifteen hundredths?
• I say point but my teacher said say and
• I need help on dividing decimals and fractions.
• Well, I know how to divide fractions. With practice it is simple!
Here is an example:
5/6 divided by 2/5
First, you have to flip the second fraction. So now the second fraction is 5/2 ( which by the way is a improper fraction). Now you turn the division sign into a multiplication sign. So now the equation is 5/6 times 5/2. And now you just multiply the fractions like any other problem and BOOM! you got it. By the way the answer is 25/12 or, simplified, 2 1/12
• How would you say .3333 repeated? Would you just round it to .33?
