A decimal is a value, a decimal point separates the whole number from the fraction.

EG 12.34 is a decimal, the point is the dot in the middle...
a decimal is a group of number combined to make a number problem and a decimal point divides it so you wont get confused

EX: candy bar $ 1.50 without the decimal point $150
