When we write a decimal number with two places, we are representing the hundredths place. Let us take plane sheet which represents one whole. Now, we divide the sheet into 100 equal parts.
Each part represents one-hundredths of the whole. It is written as \(\frac{1}{100}\). In the decimal form it is written as 0.01. It is read as zero point zero one.
Let us represents \(\frac{35}{100}\) on a square sheet.
35 parts of hundred equal parts are colored. We write this as 0.35 in decimal form, where 3 represents 3 tenths and 5 represents 5 hundredths. In the place value chart 3 is written in tenths column and 5 is written in the hundredths column.
