Why Do you move decimal points over when multiplying?

If you just pull some numbers out of the air and practice with them, you'll discover that whenever you multiply or divide a number by ten (10), you wind up with exactly the same digits as you started with, and the only difference is that the decimal point is moved over one place. Knowing this trick, you should always keep it in your tool box. If you have to do an arithmetic problem and it has a multiplication or division by 10 in it, you don't have to go through the whole procedure. All you have to do is move the decimal point over one place. (Of course, you also have to know which way to move it.)
