graph 0.6 on the number line down here we have a number line that goes from 0 to 1 and it's split into 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 equal spaces these tick marks there's 10 of these spaces all the way from 0 to 1 so between any two of these spaces for example between these first two tick marks could be represented by 1/10 it's one one of the ten equal spaces is 1/10 of the distance now the number we're supposed to graph is 0.6 well this 6 is in the tenths place value so another way we could read this decimal is 6 tenths or as the fraction six tenths so if one of these spaces represents one out of ten equal spaces and we want six tenths then we need to travel six of the 10 equal spaces six tenths of the way six of the 10 spaces so we can start at the beginning and go one two three four five six and graph right here with a point and this is six tenths
