# Tenth Place in Decimals

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.
