- Yes because the 0 is the placeholder and does not change the value(18 votes)

- Why do we have to use number lines to graph tenths? Is there any real world connections to this strategy?(8 votes)
- When you read a ruler, can you find 3/16 or 5/8?

Physical objects rarely have physical measurements that fall on whole units. You need to be able to identify and read fractions.(8 votes)

- I dont understand this at all(7 votes)
- It's okay if you don't understand just watch the video again and listen carefully or ask questions on what you don't understand :D(7 votes)

- does 1.000000001 = 1 1/00000000?(4 votes)
- No. There is no place value of 0. We can never have a denominator of 0 because division by 0 is undefined.

1.000000001 = 1 1/100000000

Or, in words, it is One and one hundred millionths.(9 votes)

- At 0.47 , how do you put a decimal on a number line? And why did they put it on a number line ? isn't there a much easier way to do that / show a Graph ?(4 votes)
- The number line is a graphing tool. So, if you plot the decimal value on the number line, you have done its graph.(4 votes)

- Did you know that animals 'is' maths?(5 votes)
- Write 0.00000223 in words(4 votes)
- I still need more of an explanation(4 votes)
- i'm confused what do we do(3 votes)
- Yes 0.5 is bigger than 0.4 because the 5 is in the tenths place.If it was in the hundredths place than it it would be smaller(2 votes)

## Video transcript

- [Voiceover] Graph
0.6 on the number line. Down here we have a number
line that goes from zero to one and it's split into one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight,
nine, 10 equal spaces. These tick marks, there's
10 of these spaces all the way from zero to one. So between any two of these spaces, for example, between these
first two tick marks, could be represented by 1/10. It's one, one of the 10 equal spaces. It's 1/10 of the distance. Now the number we're
supposed to graph is 0.6. Well this six is in
the tenths place value, so another way we could read this decimal is 6 tenths, or as the fraction, 6/10. So if one of these spaces
represents one out of 10 equal spaces, and we want 6/10, then we need to travel six
of the 10 equal spaces, 6/10 of the way. Six of the 10 spaces. So we can start at the
beginning and go one, two, three, four, five, six. And graph right here with
a point and this is 6/10.
