• This is so profoundly confusing. I mean this likely has to do with the fact I am not at all bright. But what is going on and how does this relate to the real world?
• I do not understand :( but it is the regrouping that I don't understand. But it is cool
• Ooh I understand it makes so much sense now!! Thanks. But there is also one question a little different then that that I can't find out :(. I'll get it. Thanks!
• Keep at it Natalie! Those AHA moments are wonderful feelings, and they usually come sooner or later. Keep practicing and you'll get it.
• So regrouping works with decimals too?
• Yes apparently….
• What, how did you do that
• just get the idea of fractions and associate it with the decimal place values.

Example: take 1 and divide it by 100, so we get 0.01
take 1 and divide it by 10, we get 0.1
