Naming Decimals Help
As with whole numbers, each digit of a decimal has a place value . The place value names are shown in Fig. 5-1 .
For example, in the number 0.6235, the 2 is in the hundredths place. The 5 is in the ten thousandths place.
When naming a decimal, read the number from left to right as you would read a whole number, and then use the place value name for the last digit of the number .
First write in words 6235, and then write the place value of the five after it:
Six thousand two hundred thirty-five ten thousandths.
When there is a whole number and a decimal, the decimal part is written using the word "and."
Fifty-seven and two hundred sixty-three thousandths.
