To get 10 percent of any number, just move the decimal point to the left one space. So, for 20.00, 10 percent is 2.00. If you want 10 percent of 5, imagine that there's a decimal point after the 5 and move the decimal point to the left, so it's .5, or 50 cents!

It depends on what you mean. 0.10 is the same as 10 cents is the same as 10¢ 0.10¢ is a tenth of a cent

0.10

The number "02" is exactly equivalent to the number "2", and the units "cents" are the same. Therefore, 02 cents equals 2 cents. You could say it either way. It's not common to add a zero before a number, but it is perfectly legal to do so. Recently, many medical workers have been making decimal point errors when administering drugs. Sometimes the decimal point would be removed, and a patient might receive 10 times the dosage prescribed. For example, the doctor might have written ".2 mg", but the nurse looked and did not notice the decimal point and rewrote it as "2 mg", making it 10 times the dosage prescribed. Therefore, in hospitals there is a movement to mandate the addition of a zero in front of the decimal point, so the doctor should have written the number as "0.2 mg", which makes it much more difficult to miss that decimal point. For the current question, 02 cents is the same as 2 cents, but I would say that writing 2 cents is more common. Both are mathematically correct.

10 cents is 1/10 of a dollar.

10 cents is the same as .10 .10 x 1,000,000,000 = 100,000,000. When you multiply anything by 10, you are just adding a zero at the end of the second number. 1,000,000,000 x________.10 10,000,000,000 You have to move the decimal to the left two places because you have two numbers after the decimal in .10 you end up with 100,000,000. If you want THAT in cents, move the decimal back over to the right two spots to get 10,000,000,000 cents.

Ten cents is one tenth of a dollar, so you would write it as .10, which is also the same as 100 (cents) divided by 10.

Well since 10% of 10 dollars is 1 dollar then 1% of 10 dollars would be .10 cents

When you move a decimal point to the right you are multiplying a number by 10. For example, take 3.4. If you move the decimal point to the right you get 34. This is the same as: 3.4x10 = 34. Reversing this, you are dividing by 10 by moving the decimal point to the left. For example, take 73. If you move the decimal point to the right you get 7.3. This is the same as: 73/10 = 7.3. If you move a decimal point 2 spaces to the right, you are multiplying by 100, or more generally if you move the decimal point n spaces to the right, you are multiplying by 10^n.

AS a decimal 8/10 = 0.8

In the base ten system the decimal point is located between 10^0 and 10^-1, that is, between the ones and the tenths.

The decimal point moves one place to the left when dividing by 10.

A nickel is worth 5 cents, which is written as $0.05. Coins are all fractions of dollars.For example, a dime is worth 10 cents, and 10 cents is written $0.10..A quarter is worth 25 cents, written $0.25.

20 cents x 1/2 = 10 cents. Your daughter took 10 cents; you have 10 cents left.

There is a 0 to the left of the decimal point, whereas the other number has a 4 so that is larger. In money it is like 10 cents ($0.10) compared to four dollars ninety-three cents ($4.93).

It is 10 months. There is no need for a decimal point, and trailing 0s are misleading.

the decimal point moves forward

The decimal point moves to the left.

You move the decimal point one place to the right.

To the Right

right

Move the decimal point one place to the right. If the decimal point is already at the end of the number, add a 0 to the extreme right before moving the decimal point.
