Best Answer

When you are multiplying two numbers with decimals, it's easy to do.

First, multiply the numbers as if there were not decimals there:

~5.8

x8.7

____

~406

464

_____

5046

... then, count the number of places for the decimal points, and add them together. 5.8 = 1 decimal place, 8.7 = 1 decimal place, the two added together are 2 decimal places. So your answer, 5046 needs to have two decimal places; or 50.46

(I'm sorry, I had to use a ~ to keep spacing correct... I'm having problems pushing a nbsp into the code... lol)
