Rounding decimals is very similar to rounding other numbers. If the thousandths place of a decimal is four or less, it is dropped and the hundredths place does not change. For example, rounding 0.843 to the nearest hundredth would give 0.84.

0.1654 is "zero point one six five four" "a little less than one sixth" zero ones and one tenths and six hundredths and five thousandths and four ten-thousandths.

4 thousandths = 0.004. So 5.585 - 0.004 = 5.581

There are 60 thousandths in the second number. There are only 58 thousandths in the first.

one thousandth is equal to 0.001 in decimal form.369.2284 has 8 in the thousandths place and 4 in the ten-thousandths place. So, rounding to the nearest thousandth means rounding the number in the ten-thousandths place up or down (down if less than 5, up if five or greater).The 4 rounds down, so the answer is 369.228

0.00045 ten-thousandths is 0.0005. You can write any number which has 4 or less in place of the 5, and any numbers you want after that. Another example would be 0.000357915.

0.000001 is one millionth, which is much smaller.

0.00x - 0.005 = x -0.005 = x - 0.00x x + 00x = 0.005

You cannot, because 8 thousandths is less than one, so there is no 'mixing' to be done. If it were 1 and 8 thousandths, then the mixed number would be 1 8/1000, or as a decimal fraction, 1.008. The decimal fraction 8 thousandths could be written 0.008, and as a fraction, 8/1000

5 ten thousandths in decimal form is 0.0005 Any decimal number that has three zeros after the decimal point and then a lower number than 5 is smaller. If the number has more than three zeros after the decimal point it is smaller.

The first 4 digits after the decimal point must be zero and the next digit must be 4 or smaller. If it is 4, then the subsequent digits cannot be a sequence of repeating 9s.
