# Worksheet on Multiplication of Decimal Fractions

We will practice the questions given in the worksheet on multiplication of decimal fractions. While multiplying the decimal numbers ignore the decimal point and perform the multiplication as usual and then put the decimal point in the product to get as many decimal places in the product as there are in the multiplicant.

(v) 89.015 × 10

(vi) 4.34 × 100

(vii) 3.125 × 86

(viii) 8.7 × 100

2. Fill in the blanks:

(i) 4.812 × ______ = 4.812

(i) 90

(ii) 900

(iii) 0.9

(iv) 0.09

4. Multiply the following:
