• How would u know what side its coming from?
• The right is bigger and the left is smaller. It just depends on how the number line is made.

I hope this helps!!
• This is crazy, I wish I would just KNOW all of this... but I hope I get way way way better at it!😔🙂
• you will one day we all way i belive in you 28alkow01
• Why is it that sometimes it the questions on the numberline have something like 0.04 for the tens and sometimes 0.4?
• Well, 0.04 and 0.4 are two different numbers. It all depends on the placement.
I think you may have meant 0.40 and 0.4. Those are equivalent (the same). You can delete the zeros on the right of the decimal in 0.40 and it comes out to 0.4- it's the same thing because the 4 is still in the tenths place no matter what.
• i see what you did but is there by chance an easier way of doing this? i think that it is still a litlle tricky
• why not see this as 42/100 or.42?
in earlier exercises it was assumed with 10x10 or ten points every 10 marks it counted as a total of 100. Now it doesnt. this seemingly arbitrary change can lead to a failing the question.
• ok rewatching, it I don't get it at minute is were it got all coufusing can some one please help me out
• bro what da heck it is so easy
• at minute it got confusing. can some one help me?
• at it changed from tenths to hundredths which is 1/10 of a tenth
