Thousandths Place in Decimals
When we write a decimal number with three places, we are
representing the thousandths place. Each part in the given figure represents
one-thousandth of the whole.
● Look at the given figure, which is divide into 100 equal parts, Each part is further divided into 10 equal parts, i.e., a square is divided into 1000 parts and out of it, 1 part is shaded. We say \(\frac{1}{1000}\) part is shaded.
It is written as \(\frac{1}{1000}\). In the decimal form it is written as 0.001. It is read as 'zero point zero zero one' or 'one thousandth'.
● If we take 9 parts out of 1000 equal parts of an object, then 9 parts make 9/1000 of the whole and it is written as 0.009
● Let us represent \(\frac{125}{1000}\).
In the given figure 125 parts of 1000 equal parts are
colored. We write this as 0.125 in decimal form, where 1 represents 1 tenths, 2
represents 2 hundredths and 5 represents 5 thousandths. So, in the place-value
chart 1 is written in the tenths column, 2 is written in the hundredth column
and 5 is written in the thousandth column.
Similarly, we write We can also write, \(\frac{47}{1000}\), \(\frac{187}{1000}\), \(\frac{897}{1000}\) as 0.047, 0.187 and 0.897 respectively.
We can also write, \(\frac{4653}{1000}\) = 4.653, \(\frac{57025}{1000}\) = 57.025 and so on.
From the above discussion, we observe that a fraction in the form \(\frac{\textrm{number}}}{1000}\) is written as a decimal obtained by putting decimal point to the left of three right-most digits. If the number is short of digits, we insert zeros to the left of the number.

Word problems on decimals are solved here step by step. The product of two numbers is 42.63. If one number is 2.1, find the other. Solution: Product of two numbers = 42.63 One number = 2.1
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
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
We will learn uses decimals in every day. In daily life we use decimals while dealing with length, weight, money etc. Use of Decimals whole Dealing with Money: 100 paise = 1 rupee We know that one paise in one hundredth of a rupee.
In conversion of unlike decimals to like decimals follow the steps of the method. Step I: Find the decimal number having the maximum number of decimal places, say (n). Step II: Now, convert each
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
Concept of like and unlike decimals: Decimals having the same number of decimal places are called like decimals i.e. decimals having the same number of digits on the right of the decimal
In converting fractions to decimals, we know that decimals are fractions with denominators 10, 100, 1000 etc. In order to convert other fractions into decimals, we follow the following steps:
In converting decimals to fractions, we know that a decimal can always be converted into a fraction by using the following steps: Step I: Obtain the decimal. Step II: Remove the decimal points from the given decimal and take as numerator.
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.
Decimal place value chart are discussed here: The first place after the decimal is got by dividing the number by 10; it is called the tenths place.
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 \(\frac{1}{100}\).
