Identifying Decimal Place Value


The decimal place value of a number is simply the value of that number defined by the place in which the digit is. To find the place value, first look at the decimal point, for example in the number 6.5. Then you have to put aside the numbers on the left side and the right side of the decimal point. The number or numbers on the left side would be the whole numbers. The numbers on the right side of the decimal point will be the decimals. Then find place values of the whole numbers which is ones, tens, hundreds, etc. Then find decimal place values of the decimal number. Remember they will be decimal place values of tenths, hundredths, thousandths, etc. To understand it better I prefer watching the video. Now try some of these out:
