A decimal number is simply a way of representing a number in such a way that the place value of each digit is ten times that of the digit to its right. A decimal representation does not require a decimal point. Adding zeros after the decimal point is wrong because they imply a degree of accuracy (significant figures) for which there is no justification.So the answer is 957 - exactly as it appears in the question.
Put the decimal point after the first non-zero digit.Count how many digits the decimal point needs to move to get back to where it was (if there was no decimal point it was hiding after the number)If the decimal point needs to move to the left to get back to where it was, make the count in step 2 negativemultiply the number in step 1 by 10 to the power of the number that is the result of steps 2 and 3.The number written in step 1 can be rounded if necessary to a number of significant figures (after the count in step 2 has been made)That's how I write it in expanded form, this is it being done for 23800167:2.3800267need to move decimal point 7 digits to get it back to the right hand endmoving right, so leave positive (+7)2.3800267 x 107So 23800167 = 2.3800167x107To 3 sig fig, 2.3800267 → 2.38⇒ 23800167 ≈ 2.38 x 107
7.23x10^-4. Move the decimal place to the right. The number of times you move the decimal is the same number as the exponent.
Move the decimal point two places to the right. 0.09 = 9% 0.90 = 90% 9.00 = 900%
Move the decimal point two places to the right. 150
To the left of a decimal point are whole numbers. On the right of a decimal point are parts of a whole number.
If you mean the numbers to the right of the decimal point, they comprise the fractional part of the number.
yes. any thing you have on the right side of the decimal point(.) is a decimal:)
No matter the number, the tenths place is the first to the right of the decimal point. In numbers with no decimal point, the tenths place is zero.
why does multiplying numbers by ten move the decimal point to the right
Rounding off means rounding to the nearest integer, thereby eliminating any numbers to the right of the decimal point. If the numbers on the right side of the decimal point are greater than, or equal to 0.5 (e.g. 2.7), then you delete all the numbers to the right of the decimal point and increase the remaining number by one. If they are not greater than, or equal to 0.5 (e.g. 5.1), then you delete all the numbers to the right of the decimal point and leave the remaining number as it is.In the case of 4.99 the numbers to the right of the decimal point are greater than 0.5 so we delete the numbers to the right of the decimal (4.99) then increase the remaining number by one (4+1=5). The answer is 5.
A decimal number is not always smaller than a whole number. This is a decimal number 2.45 The number on the left of the decimal point shows the whole numbers. The numbers on the right of the point shows the parts/fractions. This number is not a whole number .098 This number is a whole number 2.00 This number has whole numbers and parts/fractions of the whole 2.098
Almost all numbers that we use in daily life are decimal numbers. The place value of each digit is ten times the place value of the digit to its right. And that is all that is required of decimal numbers. A decimal point is not necessary.
In decimal numbers the numeral on the left side of the point are the whole numbers and the numbers on the right of the decimal point are the parts/fractions of a number. So in this decimal number 3.4 ---- 3 is a whole number and 4 is a fraction or part of a whole number. Because there is only one number on the right side the 4 represents 4 tenths. 3.4 can be written as 3 4/10 ( three and four tenths). If there are two numbers on the right side of the decimal point then they are 100ths. So in this number 5.75 the .75 is 75 hundredths = 5 75/100. If there are three numbers on the right side of the decimal point then they are 1000ths. So in this number 12.357 the .357 is 357 thousandths = 12 375/1000.
It makes the value of the orginal number larger.
No. 8mm can be written as 8.0mm For decimal numbers the numbers on the left hand side of the decimal point are whole numbers and the numbers on the right hand side of the decimal point are parts of numbers, fractions. 0.8 is not a whole number. 8.0 is a whole number so .8 and 8. are not the same
Moving a decimal point to the right is the same as multiplying a number by a power of ten. As long as both numbers are multiplied by the same amount, they will retain their same relationship.
