'zero point one five zero one two'.

NOT point fifteen thousand and twelve.

Because , the 'point one' immediately to the right of the decimal point is a 'tenth'. NOT a thousand.

Remember in decimals

The point

Then tenths (1)

Then hundreths (5)

Then thousandths (0)

Then tens of thousandths (1)

Then hundreds of thousandths (2)

The next would be 'millionths'.

Hi Joey Jackson, Yes!! agreed it is cumbersome. However it is used to distinguish from none-decimal numbers. The number 'pi' ???? Well you could gone on for ever.!!!!
