Lesson 1 WHAT IS DECIMAL?
After accomplishing the lesson, the students are expected to:
. Define decimals.
. Identify the terms in decimal numbers.
. Familiarize the language of decimal numbers.
One important feature of our number system is the decimal. It involved many computational operations. It is very useful in the measurement of very thin sheets and in the computation involving in exact amount. But what is decimal? Look at the following examples: Back Next
.3 = 3 .03 = 3
.003 = 3 .0003 = 3
b. .5 = 5 .05 = 5 10 100 .005 = 5 .0005 = 5 1000 10000 Back Next
From the example given above, a “ decimal ” may be defined as a fraction whose denominator is in the power of 10. Back Next
Numbers in the power of 10 are 10, 100, 1000, 1000, etc. The dot before a digit in a decimal is called “ decimal point ” which is an indicator that the number is a decimal. The place on the position occupied by a digit at the right of the decimal point is called a “ decimal place ”. Back Exercises

How to read and write decimals or decimal numbers? A decimal is read and write according to the number of decimal place it has. Here are the rules in reading and writing decimal numbers. Back Next
RULE I. A decimal of one decimal place is to be read and to be written as tenth. .4 is read as “4 tenths” and is to be written as “four tenths”; 4/10 .2 is read as “2 tenths” and is to be written as “two tenths”. 2/10 Back Next
RULE II. A decimal of two decimal places is to be read and to be written as hundredth. .35 is read as “35 hundredths” and is to be written as “thirty – five hundredths”; 35/100 .43 is read as “43 hundredths” and is to be written as “forty – three hundredths”.43/100 Back Next
RULE III. A decimal of three decimal places is to be read and written as thousandth. .261 is read as “261 thousandths” and is to be written as “two hundred sixty – one thousandths”; 261/1000 .578 is read as “578 thousandths” and is to be written as “five hundred seventy – eight thousandths”.578/1000 Back Next
RULE IV. A decimal of four decimal places is to be read and to be written as ten thousandth. .4917 is read as “4917 ten thousandths” and is to be written as “four thousand, nine hundred seventeen ten thousandths”; 4917/10,000 .5087 is read as “5087 ten thousandths” and is to be written as “five thousand eighty - seven ten thousandths”.5078/10,000 Back Next
