## Want to join the conversation?

• How do you change a decimal by its value?
• you look to the left of the decimal and if it is 5 or more 4 or less let it rest
• can we have decimals like this 3.0485684948593850 yes or no
• Yes, decimals can have any number of digits after the decimal point. They can even have infinitely many digits after the decimal point.

Have a blessed, wonderful day!
• I got the correct answer and it says it is wrong
• try refreshing the site or as a adult or report a problem when your doing a exercise
• 3.47 = 3 ones and 4 tenths and 7 hundredths

If you regroup those to 3 ones and 14 tenths and 7 hundredths. What would it looked like on decimal?

3.147 ? 🤔😕
• You went from having 4 tenths, to having 14 tenths. If you wanted to do that, you would have to say 2 ones, 14 tenths, and 7 hundredths, because you borrowed 10 tenths (1 whole) from the 3 ones.
• thanks! i learned alot
• reading all these reply's are hurting my brain, you guys are to smart.😨😰😓
• what is the biggest decimal number
• There is no biggest decimal number. Real numbers (which include decimals) have no largest number. They are said to extend to infinity. As soon as you find what you think is the largest number, you can add some value to it and get an even larger number.
• Can someone please tell me why regrouping is so important, I did not understand a single thing he said
• This is the answer google gave me: "Regrouping is a great way to make larger calculations easier to do, especially for children.
