• you take the decimal away and multiply.then,you put the decimal point the number of places to the left of the number by the number of places to the left of the numbers you're multiplying by. make sense?

• What do you do if the decimal is a number like 7475.92? That would definitely be hard to multiply, right? I really hate doing really long multi-digit multiplication problems. 😥😥😥 It takes A LOT of time to solve, and I want to use the most less time.
I know that was really long, but somehow, I got it out of me.

• decimals are easy for me but not dividing decimals thats the hard part
