This is because when fractions are multiplied together both their numerators and denominators are multiplied... So .1*.1=.01 it is easier to think of in a fraction so 1/10 * 1/10= (1*1)/(10*10) or 1/100

How do you get one tenth?

If you want to find one tenth of a number, divide it by 10. For example, one tenth of 50 is 5. I teach my students about fraction this way. When you consider one tenth of something, 1/10, think of the denominator of the fraction as the number of equal groups you have to divide a particular number into. Then think of the numerator of the fraction as the number of those equal groups you are counting up. Another example: to find 3/10 of 50, divide 50 into ten equal groups of 5 each. Then count three of them: 5 + 5 + 5 = 15. 3/10 of 50 is 15.
