- At0:44, she mentioned one tenth, is there such a thing as an "oneth place" in decimals?(0 votes)
- Lindsay probably said oneth ACCIDENTALLY instead of ones but i'm pretty sure that she said one tenth(3 votes)

- 5/2 is greater than 5/6 am i right?(7 votes)
- Yes. 5/2 is 2.5, but 5/6 is 0.833333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333 and so forth.(1 vote)
- Can a decimal like 1.08 be converted into a fraction like 1 8/100(4 votes)
- Yes! And 1.08 IS 1 8/100 when converted to a mixed number. It is 108/100 when converted to an improper fraction.

- 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(5 votes)
- 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.(3 votes)
- 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.(5 votes)

- We can find decimal notation of a fraction let's say 3/10 = 0.3 We can also find decimal notation of 3/5 = 6/10 = 0.6. But how to find the decimal notation of 3/7? Because here we can't find the equivalent fraction of 3/7 with denominator 10.(3 votes)
- [Voiceover] Where is the point on the number line? Well, here it is, here is the point. But I'm guessing that they're asking not literally just to find it and look at it but what number is this point graphed at. Where is this on the number line? So, one thing we know pretty quickly is the number is between three and four. It's greater than three but it's not quite four. But to figure out how much greater than three we need to know what these black tick marks represent. So, between three and four there is one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten equal spaces. So, each of these distances, each of these equal spaces, is one tenth or one tenth of the distance between three and four. It's one out of ten equal spaces. So, if that's one tenth and this next space is another one tenth. And then we have to travel one more tenth to get to our point. So, we went three, we know it's three. Plus, one, two, three tenths. Three and three tenths. Or, let's write this as a decimal, let's look at it as a decimal. If we wanted, we could have our ones place value and then after the ones, the decimal and the tenths. So, for the ones, there's three ones. And how many tenths did we see here? There were three tenths. So, either way we can say three and three tenths or three and three tenths. Our decimal, our point is 3.3 on the number line.
