Decimals A Decimal Number (based on the number 10) contains a Decimal Point. First, let's have an example: Here is the number "forty-five and six-tenths" written as a decimal number: The decimal point goes between Ones and Tenths. 45.6 has 4 Tens, 5 Ones and 6 Tenths, like this: Now, let's discover how it all works ... Place Value It is all about Place Value ! When we write numbers, the position (or "place") of each digit is important. In the number 327: the "7" is in the Ones position, meaning 7 ones (which is 7), the "2" is in the Tens position meaning 2 tens (which is twenty), and the "3" is in the Hundreds position, meaning 3 hundreds. ... and ... And that is a Decimal Number! We can continue with smaller and smaller values, from tenths, to hundredths, and so on, like in this example: Have a play with decimal numbers yourself: Large and Small So, our Decimal System lets us write numbers as large or as small as we want, using the decimal point.

Math Playground - Online Math Games that Give your Brain a Workout Place Value We write numbers using only ten symbols (called Digits). Where we place them is important. The Ten Digits The Digits we use today are called "Hindu-Arabic Numerals" and look like these: We can use these on their own to count up to 9: But what happens after 9? Ten Or More ... When we have more than 9 items, we start another column - the "tens" column - and we write down how many "tens" we have, followed by how many "ones" (also called "units"). Example: this is how we write down twelve: The Number "12" It says we have 1 Ten and 2 Ones, which makes 12. This can also be written as 1 × 10 + 2 × 1. Example: "35" means 3 Tens and 5 Ones, which is also 3 × 10 + 5 × 1 The Number "35" Zero What if we have 1 Ten, but no Ones? The Number "10" We have to put a zero in the Ones place, or "10" would look like "1". A Hundred Or More ... When we have more than 99 items, we start another column - the "hundreds" column. The Number 143 That shows we have 1 Hundred, 4 Tens and 3 Ones: Which is also 3 × 100 + 6 × 10 + 9 × 1
