Lesson 4: Decimals in written form

# 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
