The
first place after the decimal point is tenth place which represents how many
tenths are there in a number. Let us take a plane sheet which represents one
whole. Now, divide the sheet into ten equal parts. Each part represents one
tenth of the whole.
It is written as \(\frac{1}{10}\). In the decimal form it is written as 0.1, where the whole number part is zero and the fractional part is \(\frac{1}{10}\).
It is read as zero pint one. So, a decimal (point) is placed between the whole number and the fractional number. All the numerals after the decimal shows that it is less than a whole.
The number before decimal point is called the integral part or whole and the number after the decimal is called the decimal part.
Now let us color 3 strips of the tenths sheet.
The colored part is represented as \(\frac{3}{10}\). In the decimal form it is written as 0.3. It is read as zero point three.
In 5th Grade Decimals Worksheet contains various types of questions on operations on decimal numbers. The questions are based on formation of decimals, comparing decimals, Converting Fractions to Decimals, Addition of decimals, subtraction of decimals, multiplication of
While comparing natural numbers we first compare total number of digits in both the numbers and if they are equal then we compare the digit at the extreme left. If they also equal then we compare the next digit and so on. We follow the same pattern while comparing the
Decimal numbers can be expressed in expanded form using the place-value chart. In expanded form of decimal fractions we will learn how to read and write the decimal numbers. Note: When a decimal is missing either in the integral part or decimal part, substitute with 0.
Division of a decimal number by 10, 100 or 1000 can be performed by moving the decimal point to the left by as many places as the number of zeroes in the divisor. The rules of division of decimal fractions by 10, 100, 1000 etc. are discussed here.
Addition of decimal numbers are similar to addition of whole numbers. We convert them to like decimals and place the numbers vertically one below the other in such a way that the decimal point lies exactly on the vertical line. Add as usual as we learnt in the case of whole
Simplification in decimals can be done with the help of PEMDAS Rule. From the above chart we can observe that first we have to work on "P or Parentheses" and then on "E or Exponents", then from
Solve the questions given in the worksheet on decimal word problems at your own space. This worksheet provides a mixture of questions on decimals involving order of operations
Practice the math questions given in the worksheet on dividing decimals. Divide the decimals to find the quotient, same like dividing whole numbers. This worksheet would be really good for the students to practice huge number of decimal division problems.
To divide a decimal number by a whole number the division is performed in the same way as in the whole numbers. We first divide the two numbers ignoring the decimal point and then place the decimal point in the quotient in the same position as in the dividend.
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
To multiply a decimal number by a decimal number, we first multiply the two numbers ignoring the decimal points and then place the decimal point in the product in such a way that decimal places in the product is equal to the sum of the decimal places in the given numbers.
The rules of multiplying decimals are: (i) Take the two numbers as whole numbers (remove the decimal) and multiply. (ii) In the product, place the decimal point after leaving digits equal to the total number of decimal places in both numbers.
The working rule of multiplication of a decimal by 10, 100, 1000, etc... are: When the multiplier is 10, 100 or 1000, we move the decimal point to the right by as many places as number of zeroes after 1 in the multiplier.
We will practice the questions given in the worksheet on subtraction of decimal fractions. While subtracting the decimal numbers convert them into like decimal then subtract as usual ignoring decimal point and then put the decimal point in the difference directly under the
We will practice the questions given in the worksheet on addition of decimal fractions. While adding the decimal numbers convert them into like decimal then add as usual ignoring decimal point and then put the decimal point in the sum directly under the decimal points of all
The rules of subtracting decimal numbers are: (i) Write the digits of the given numbers one below the other such that the decimal points are in the same vertical line. (ii) Subtract as we subtract whole numbers. Let us consider some of the examples on subtraction
Practice different types of math questions given in the worksheet on comparing and ordering decimals. This worksheet contains questions mainly related to compare decimals and then place the decimals in the correct order by arranging decimals in ascending order and desce
Like Decimal Fractions are discussed here. Two or more decimal fractions are called like decimals if they have equal number of decimal places. However the number of digits in the integral part does not matter. 0.43, 10.41, 183.42, 1.81, 0.31 are all like fractions
We will discuss here about changing unlike to like decimal fractions. Unlike decimal fractions can be changed to like decimals by adding as many zeroes as required. Convert 13.183, 341.43, 1.04 to like decimals.
Unlike decimal fractions are discussed here. Two or more decimal fractions are called unlike decimals if they have unequal numbers of decimal places. Let us consider some of the unlike decimals; (i) 8.4, 8.41, 8.412 In 8.4, 8.41, 8.412 the number of decimal places are 1, 2
