1/10 because 9/10 and 1/10 make 1 (a whole, in this case a whole iceberg).

Q: Nine tenths of an iceberg is hidden under water so what fraction can you see?

Typically, about 90% of an iceberg is underwater, while only about 10% is visible above the surface. This is because ice is less dense than seawater, causing most of the iceberg to remain submerged.

Well 3.333 recurring is a third, so 3 tenths are just under that.

It is either a positive or negative proper fraction, 0 or an improper negative fraction.

You are lining up the place value columns, so that the tens are under each other, the ones are under each other, the tenths are under each other, the hundredths are under each other, etc so that when you do the addition/subtraction you are adding/subtracting the tens from the tens, the ones from the ones, the tenths from the tenths, the hundredths from the hundredths, etc. The easiest way to line up the place value columns is to align the decimal points. Remember that an empty place value column is the same as that place value column containing a zero. When adding/subtracting whole numbers align the numbers at their right hand end. What you are doing is actually aligning the "hidden" decimal points - the decimal point sits between the ones place value column and the tenths place value column; when there is no decimal part of a number, the decimal point (and trailing zeros) are not written, so it is "hiding" after the last (ones) digit of the number.

That's a hair under 6 and 5/8
