The answer will depend on what on earth you mean by "5 yeh thousandths".

0.000001 is one millionth, which is much smaller.

You cannot, because 8 thousandths is less than one, so there is no 'mixing' to be done. If it were 1 and 8 thousandths, then the mixed number would be 1 8/1000, or as a decimal fraction, 1.008. The decimal fraction 8 thousandths could be written 0.008, and as a fraction, 8/1000

5 ten thousandths in decimal form is 0.0005 Any decimal number that has three zeros after the decimal point and then a lower number than 5 is smaller. If the number has more than three zeros after the decimal point it is smaller.

2.345

The first 4 digits after the decimal point must be zero and the next digit must be 4 or smaller. If it is 4, then the subsequent digits cannot be a sequence of repeating 9s.

0.00000000001 or -0.5 are two examples.

Write a zero Write a decimal point Write a zero Write a zero Write a zero Write any digit less than 5 (if you wrote a zero you will have to write another digit or as many zeros as you want, and then a digit that is not a zero).

The thousandth place in a decimal would be the 3rd number after the decimal point. For this number, you would round to 112.457 because if the next number is 5 or greater, you will round up. If the next number is less than 5, the number in the thousandths place would remain unchanged.

1/12 expressed as a decimal is 0.0833 (4dp) 83/1000 expressed as a decimal is 0.083 but write this as 0.0830 for ease of comparison. 0.0833 is greater than 0.0830 (by 0.0003). Conversely, 0.0830 is less than 0.0833. Therefore 83/1000 is less than 1/12.

The same as any other decimal number except that the value before the decimal place would be less than 5.

No because 7/100 as a decimal is 0.07 but 11/1000 as a decimal is 0.011 which is less

No it is not. It would be if it was a negative.

There are infinitely many such numbers. One possible answer is -3.

Any number less than ' 1 '.

There are an infinite number of them. One of them is 4 ten-thousandths. Another one is 3 ten-thousandths. In general, it's any number 'N' that makes the statement [ N < 0.0005 ] true.

Any decimal that starts 2.07 and the next digit (thousandths) is 0-4, and if the thousandths digit is 0, is followed by a non-zero digit at some stage. eg 2.07000000000000000000000000000000000001, 2.074999999999999999, 2.074 are all greater than 2.07 and less than 2.075

5 ten thousands = Fifty thousands so a number such as 48953 will do.
