# 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.

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.

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.
