• How does 1/10 have to seam value as 2/20?
• does it just keep going the number and then "ths" like ten-ths, hundre-ths? does that mean it would say millionths
• So, technically VolcikShotKill is correct because you could be like ones, tenths, hundredths, thousandths, ten thousandths, hundred thousandths ect. ect.

• How do you do you order those numbers? I found it to confusing.
• It helps if you look at the numbers directly to the right of the decimal and see which ones are greater. Then move farther right. Like 0.45 and 0.23. The four and two are closest to the decimal so if you compare them you can find out which one is greater. 4 is bigger than 2 so 0.45 is bigger. If two numbers are the same move farther to the right.

• Yup, what they said. Another way is to just look at which decimal has a number in the hundredths place, then look at the numbers behind it
