- i'm confused i can't understand if i'm counting the whole or only the tick marks(6 votes)
- Lindsay had a ten column bar and coloured 1/10(0.1)

Then she divide it again and it became 1/100(0.01)

I might not make much sense but here is a vidio that might help you Understand better:Intro to decimals grade 4.

In this vidio it mentions why you have to divide with decimals and it also mentions the place value of decimals.

Hope this helps(17 votes)

- wouldn't the end number be 0.01 to be hundredths(8 votes)
- Yes, 0.1 = 0.10

Since the 0 in the hundredth place doesn't hold a value, it can be omitted and still mean the same thing.(6 votes)

- yes what is the difference between 0.1 and 0.01(6 votes)
- .1 = 1/10 ( One tenth)

.01 = 1/100 (One hundredth)

.1 is 10 times greater than .01, and .01 is worth 1/10 the value of .1.(5 votes)

- is ok if i sortof understand it sorry for the bad spelling(4 votes)
- "sort of understanding" is a few steps along the way to understanding it completely. That's progress.

Stick with it and you will understand it completely before long.(7 votes)

- what does graphing mean in math?(5 votes)
- graphing mean to use a picture and show your visualization of the problem.

hope this helps.(2 votes)

- Is there a such thing as a 00.01?? is there is what does it stand for?(3 votes)
- 0.01 is a hundredth, or 1/100.(3 votes)

- 0.1 is an a tenth place and 0.01 is an a hundredth place(4 votes)
- so in i question i can put 1.0 and 1.0000000 and it will mean the same thing?(3 votes)
- Yes no matter how many 0 you put in and it wouldn't make any differences 1.00000(doesn't make a difference).

However you do need to be careful because if you put a 1 in front of all those 0 it will make a big difference 1.10000(Big difference).(3 votes)

- 0.4 is 10 times as much as?(3 votes)

0.04 on the number line. So here we have this number line that goes from zero to 0.1, or 1/10, and between zero and 1/10, we have one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten equal spaces. So each of these spaces
represents 1/10th of the distance, is one out of ten equal spaces. Or we could say, it is
1/10th of this tenth, it's a tenth of the way to 1/10th. That's a little bit tricky, maybe let's pause and
look at that visually and think about what does a
tenth of a tenth really mean. So here I have already drawn a picture that's divided
into 10 equal pieces. And if we shade one of them,
then we're shading 1/10th. This right here is 1/10th. And this amount right here is
what the number line showed, the whole number line showed 1/10th. But then we had divided that
tenth into 10 equal pieces, so if we split that 10
into 10 equal pieces, we're gonna have something like this. So here again this top row would
represent the entire tenth, from the whole number line, but each little piece would
be 1/10th of that whole tenth. Or, so this is what each little piece on the number line represents, or we could say that's 1/100th, a tenth of a tenth is a 1/100th, 'cause when you divide
10 into 10 equal pieces, you're gonna end up with 100 pieces. So a tenth of a tenth is a 1/100th. So looking back at the number line, now we know that this distance, a tenth of our tenth, is 1/100th. And we want to graph 0.04. Well this four right here,
let's think about place value. The zero's in the ones,
the next zero in the tenth, and this four is in the hundreds, so we could call this four hundredths, or even the fraction, 4/100. So if one of these lengths is 1/100 and we wanna go 4/100, then we're gonna need to
go four of these lengths. One, two, three, four of these lengths would be four of the hundredths, or 0.04.
