• Does anyone else find this a little confusing? Because how do you know that the "8" is supposed to be in the hundreths??
• so 8 times 5 = 40 and in this instance the
the 4 in the forty is in the tens place
the 0 is in the ones place.
The 8 and 5 are in the ones place.
sooooo
0.40 is like 40 all over again.
The 4 is in the tenths place
The zero is in the hundreths place

S0 the 8 and the 5 are in the hundreths place.
