Lesson 4: Decimals in written form# Decimals in written form review

CCSS.Math: ,

Review writing decimals in written form, and try some practice problems.

## Written form

**Written form**is a way to write numbers using only words.

### Example

Let's write start color #11accd, 3, end color #11accd, point, start color #7854ab, 4, end color #7854ab, 0, start color #ca337c, 5, end color #ca337c in written form.

Ones | . | Tenths | Hundredths | Thousandths |
---|---|---|---|---|

start color #11accd, 3, end color #11accd | . | start color #7854ab, 4, end color #7854ab | 0 | start color #ca337c, 5, end color #ca337c |

First, we will read the number to the left of the decimal.

Then, we read the decimal as "start text, start color #e07d10, a, n, d, end color #e07d10, end text".

Finally, we read the numbers to the right of the decimal and state the place value of the digit farthest to the right.

start color #11accd, start text, T, h, r, e, e, end text, end color #11accd, start color #e07d10, start text, space, a, n, d, end text, end color #e07d10 start text, space, start color #7854ab, f, o, u, r, end color #7854ab, space, h, u, n, d, r, e, d, space, start color #ca337c, f, i, v, e, end color #ca337c, space, t, h, o, u, s, a, n, d, t, h, s, end text

3, point, 405 in written form is

**three and four hundred five thousandths.***Want to learn more about written form? Check out this video.*

- As an Englishman i have never heard someone say "four hundred five thousandths" and that just sounds very strange to my ears. Here you would say "four hundred and five thousandths". I'm not sure if this is a dialect difference in America or whether this is an actual mistake on the site?(14 votes)
- In America, it's not a mistake.
**However**, you are taught to say "four hundred and five thousandths".*Math-wise*,it's better to say "four hundred and five thousandths",but you can say "four hundred five thousandths".(9 votes)
