To read the decimal 8.79, you read it eight and seventy-nine hundredths because after the decimal, there are two place values. The first is tenths and the second is hundredths. Since the last number, 9, is in the hundredth place, the whole decimal would be read as a hundredth.

You would round it up... to read 4.0 (or simply 4).

0.110 is read as "ten thousandths".

It is read as:two and thirty-four thousandths

that is what you just said. 0.2 two tenths, 20 hundredths, 200 thousandths. 0.2 is already in decimal form. It would be read as: two-tenths, or two-tenths (of one). Or, since it can be read as a fraction, since 0.2 is less than one, you would have 20%. Another way to understand this decimal is to convert it to it's lowest common denominator. Understanding that 0.2 = 2/10 (two-tenths), you can see that you can divide the numerator and the denominator by 2 and get an answer of 2/10 = 1/5. *** Actually 0.2% can be further explained as a decimal. The point is that this number (0.2%) is truly a % so it is not in pure decimal form. If you look at the percentage it is 0.2% and it is in the tens place. To move it to a true decimal you would move the decimal 2 times to the left making it 0.002.
