We will discuss here about the expanded form of decimal fractions.

In expanded form of decimal fractions we will learn how to read and write the decimal numbers.

Decimal numbers can be expressed in expanded form using the place-value chart. Let us consider the number 561.129. Let us expand each of the digits using the place-value chart.

So, we can write 561.129 in the expanded form as follows.

561.129 = 500 + 60 + 1 + 0.1 + 0.02 + 0.009

= 5 hundreds + 6 tens + 1 ones + 1 tenths + 2 hundredths + 9 thousandths

= 500 + 60 + 1 + 1/10 + 2/100 + 9/1000

Again,

493.2 = 4 hundreds + 9 tens + 3 ones + 2 tenths

= 400 + 90 + 3 + 2/10

1436.74 = 1 thousands + 4 hundreds + 3 tens + 6 ones + 7 tenths + 4 hundredths

= 1000 + 400 + 30 + 6 + 7/10 + 4/100

**Note:** When a decimal is missing either in the integral part or decimal part, substitute with 0.

**1. Write in expanded
form:**

(i) 3479.105

= 3 thousands + 4 hundreds + 7 tens + 9 ones + 1 tenths + 0 hundredths+ 5 thousandths

= 3000 + 400 + 70 + 9 + 1/10 + 0/100 + 5/1000

(ii) 7833.45

= 7 thousands + 8 hundreds + 3 tens + 3 ones + 4 tenths + 5 hundredths

= 7000 + 800 + 30 + 3 + 4/10 + 5/100

(iii) 21.1097

= 2 tens + 1 ones + 1 tenths + 0 hundredths + 9 thousandths + 7 ten thousandths

= 20 + 1 + 1/10 + 0/100 + 9/1000 + 7/10000

(iv) 524.1

= 5 hundreds + 2 tens + 4 ones + 1 tenths

= 500 + 20 + 4 + 1/10

(v) 143.011

= 1 hundreds + 4 tens + 3 ones + 0 tenths + 1 hundredths + 1 thousandths

= 100 + 40 + 3 + 0/10 + 1/100 + 1/1000

(vi) 840.006

= 8 hundreds + 4 tens + 0 ones + 0 tenths + 0 hundredths + 6 thousandths

= 800 + 40 + 0 + 0/10 + 0/100 + 6/1000

(vii) 64.21

= 6 tens + 4 ones + 2 tenths + 1 hundredths

= 60 + 4 + 2/10 + 1/100

(viii) 4334.334

= 4 thousands + 3 hundreds + 3 tens + 4 ones + 3 tenths + 3 hundredths + 4 thousandths

= 4000 + 300 + 30 + 4 + 3/10 + 3/100 + 4/1000

**2. Write as decimal
fractions:**

(i) 8 thousands + 8 ones + 3 tenths + 9 hundredths

= 8008.39

(ii) 4000 + 7 + 5/10 + 6/100

= 4007.56

(iii) 6 hundreds + 9 tens + 8 tenths + 4 thousandths

= 690.804

(iv) 3 tens + 7 ones + 6 hundredths + 8 thousandths

= 37.068

(v) 400 + 50 + 1 + 9/100

= 451.09

(vi) 800 + 70 + 2 + 8/10 + 5/1000

= 872.805

(vii) 6 tens + 5 tenths + 8 hundredths

= 60.58

(viii) 9 hundreds + 4 tens + 3 tenths + 4 hundredths

= 940.34

**3. Write the following in short form.**

(i) 100 + 0.5 + 0.06 + 0.008 (ii) 80 + 1 + 0.02 + 0.005

**Solution:**

(i) 100 + 0.5 + 0.06 + 0.008

= 100.568

(ii) 80 + 1 + 0.02 + 0.005

= 81.025

**4. Write the place-value of the underlined digits.**

(i) 2.4** 7** (ii) 11.00

**Solution:**

(i) 2.4__7__

Place-value of 7 in 2.47 is 7 hundredths or 0.07.

(ii) 11.00__3__

Place-value of 3 in 11.003 is 3 thousandths or 0.003.

(iii) 5.** 1**75

Place-value of 1 in 5.175 is 1 tenths or 0.1.
