# Decimals in written form review

Review writing decimals in written form, and try some practice problems.

## Written form

Written form is a way to write numbers using only words.

### Example

Let's write $3.405$ in written form.
Ones.TenthsHundredthsThousandths
$3$.$4$$0$$5$
First, we will read the number to the left of the decimal.
$\text{Three}$
Then, we read the decimal as "${\text{and}}$".
Finally, we read the numbers to the right of the decimal and state the place value of the digit farthest to the right.
$3.405$ in written form is three and four hundred five thousandths.

## Practice

Problem 1
Write the following number in decimal notation.
Nine and three hundred twenty-one thousandths

• As an Englishman i have never heard someone say "four hundred five thousandths" and that just sounds very strange to my ears. Here you would say "four hundred and five thousandths". I'm not sure if this is a dialect difference in America or whether this is an actual mistake on the site?
