Decimals and their properties - IntoMath
In this lesson you will learn about decimals and their properties.
A decimal number can be defined as a number whose whole and part are separated by a decimal point.
The digits following the decimal point show a value less than one.
Decimals are based on the powers of 10. As we move from left to right, the place value of the subsequent digit is divided by 10, meaning the place value becomes tenths, hundredths and thousandths.
One tenth is 1/10. In decimal form, it is 0.1.
This concept is frequently used in everyday life and can represent many different quantities, relationships and situations.
