# Come to our Decimal shop!

### By Noah (AKA Cholo) Thompson

A decimal is a dot in a number that makes a number bigger so like 8 could become 8.12

Which is bigger, 8.12 right anyway. So when your adding and subtracting decimals you have to line them up so don't do this 3.909009

+ 6.00

## How do you multiply decimals?

When you multiply decimals you got to line the dem decimal points up like this

87.873

+ 3.450

————

Not this

87.873

x 3.45

————

Then take out the decimal points and multiply the the two numbers regularly

87,873

X 3,450

———

You would use this in the real while going to a store.\$\$\$

You would also use this while you order food.\$\$\$

## Dividing Decimals

When you divide decimals you have if the divisor is not a whole number you have to move the decimal point to the right to make it a whole number and move decimal point in dividend the same number of places

Divide as usual. Keep dividing until the answer terminates or repeats.

Put decimal point directly above decimal point in the divide.

Check your answer. Multiply quotient by divisor. Does it equal the dividend?

You would use this in Tom Thumb and at Chillis
