# Graphing tenths from 0 to 1

Lindsay graphs 0.6 on a number line.  Created by Lindsay Spears.

• Does 1.10= 1.1?
• Yes because the 0 is the placeholder and does not change the value
• Why do we have to use number lines to graph tenths? Is there any real world connections to this strategy?
• 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.
• I dont understand this at all
• 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
• does 1.000000001 = 1 1/00000000?
• 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.
• Did you know that animals 'is' maths?
• 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 ?
• The number line is a graphing tool. So, if you plot the decimal value on the number line, you have done its graph.
