Decimal Worksheets

What are Decimals? A decimal is that number, which is expressed in the scale of tens. In other words, decimals are those numbers that include decimal points to represent a number including the fraction of a whole number in the form of tenths, hundredths, thousandths and so on. Let us learn how we represent decimals where we separate the whole part of the number with the fractional part of the number. In example 56.7, there are five tens, 6 ones and 7 tenths. In other words, if we have to add all of these numbers, they can be written as: 50 + 6 + 7/10. The trick is to learn the concept of place value, given that each digit is essential in a decimal number. The position of the decimal point will determine the quantity and meaning of a number. This section of our site really covers the concepts of decimals, conversion, and the use of place values well here. Don't just take our word for it, this particular section has been cited by a number of educational editors including the Times and Herald.
