Multiplication of Decimals Help
Multiplication of Decimals
To multiply two decimals, multiply the two numbers, disregarding the decimal points, and then count the total number of digits to the right of the decimal points in the two numbers. Count the same number of places from the right in the product and place the decimal point there. If there are fewer digits in the product than places, prefix as many zeros as needed .
Multiply 32.1 × 0.62.
Multiply 51.3 × 0.0006.
Since five places are needed in the answer, it is necessary to use one zero in front of the product.
