A decimal number is one in which the place value of each digit is ten times the place value of the digit to its right. (... , thousands, hundreds, tens, units, tenths, hundredths, ... ) A decimal point is used to separate the units from the tenths.

If a number in decimal form has non-zero digits after the decimal point then it is a decimal fraction. [There is one esoteric exception: if the decimal point is followed by an infinite string of 9s, then it is not a decimal fraction.]

37.6 is a decimal fraction
