• At , she mentioned one tenth, is there such a thing as an "oneth place" in decimals?
• Lindsay probably said oneth ACCIDENTALLY instead of ones but i'm pretty sure that she said one tenth
• Ur a smarty I dumb how do math.
• Don't be disheartened, everyone struggles at maths once in their life.
• 5/2 is greater than 5/6 am i right?
• Yes. 5/2 is 2.5, but 5/6 is 0.833333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333 and so forth.

• Can a decimal like 1.08 be converted into a fraction like 1 8/100
• so this is kinda confusing to me but im sure ill understand it in a while but can i get some tips and/or pointers
• I don't know if they categorize this new edition of lessons here on purpose or they didn't noticed they messed up but I'll say 'Isn't this concept a bit too late to taught while I just finished adding, subtracting, multiplying fractions. Now you're teaching me identifying tenths?' That's why sometimes I'm having a hard time on this new learning curve, it's either advanced or late.
• Yes, this lesson is here on purpose. It is showing how to find decimals on a number line. And, it ties concepts learned from fractions to the lessons on decimals. This is important because many decimals are just fractions in a different form.

The lessons on fractions had similar lessons that show how fractions relate to a number line.
• If the number line had 100 tick marks would it be 3.03?
