Place Value with Decimals

Chapter 1.2

Slide 2

## How do I know what kind of decimal it is?

The name of a decimal is determined by the number of places to the right of the decimal point

Slide 3

## What are mixed decimals?

Mixed decimals are numbers with both whole numbers and decimals

The name of a whole number is determined by the number of places to the left of the decimal point

In the number 128.765, 1 is in the hundreds place, 2 is in the tens place, 8 is in the ones place, 7 is in the tenths place, 6 is in the hundredths place, and 5 is in the thousandths place

Slide 4

## How do you read decimals?

To read a decimal correctly, first find the decimal point

Whole numbers are to the left of the decimal point; any numbers to the right of a decimal point form a decimal fraction

Say “and” for the decimal point

The decimal 2164.511 is read as “two thousand, one hundred sixty-four and five hundred eleven thousandths”

Slide 5

## Zeros after the decimal point

Writing extra zeros after the decimal point does not change the value!

The decimals 0.2, 0.20, and 0.200 are equivalent decimals
