• How would u know what side its coming from?
• The right is bigger and the left is smaller. It just depends on how the number line is made.

I hope this helps!!
• This is crazy, I wish I would just KNOW all of this... but I hope I get way way way better at it!😔🙂
• this crazy to work
• Why is it that sometimes it the questions on the numberline have something like 0.04 for the tens and sometimes 0.4?
• Well, 0.04 and 0.4 are two different numbers. It all depends on the placement.
I think you may have meant 0.40 and 0.4. Those are equivalent (the same). You can delete the zeros on the right of the decimal in 0.40 and it comes out to 0.4- it's the same thing because the 4 is still in the tenths place no matter what.
