• why can you never trust atoms? cause they make up everything!
• yeah it is
• so if I had a fraction like 28/100 why would that convert as 0.28 as decimals. shouldn't the decimal have one hundred in it like the fraction?
• No, 8 is in the hundredths place, which is why the fraction is over 100.
• i would need help alot with this
• same this is hard
• at first i did not get fractions but now i do get it
• i feel old for using khan academy right now
• I don't understand what Lindsay means by 1.57, at . Isn't the dot right at 1.50?
• So if you could subtract decimals how would you do it?

• You would subtract decimals like you would with whole numbers. So for example 8.87-3.25 you would do

8.87
-3.25
5.62
