# CLASS-4DECIMALS - HUNDREDTHS

HUNDREDTHS -

Example.1)

Suppose, there are 100 small squares in a large square. One small square is

1

one-hundredth or  -------- of the large square.

100

In above fraction, there are two zero in denominator, so decimal point or dot should move two steps left of numerator but there is only one numeric digit 1. So, now to justify two steps movement of decimal points we have to place one zero before given numerator and we have to place point towards two steps left.

1

So,  ------- =  0.01

100

Example.2)

Let, if 8 small squares out of 100 squares are considered, then eight

8

small squares make eight hundredths or ------- of the large square.

100

In above fraction, there are two zero in denominator, so decimal point or dot should move two steps left of numerator but there is only one numeric digit 8. So, now to justify two steps movement of decimal points we have to place one zero before given numerator and we have to place point towards two steps left.

8

so,  ------ = 0.08

100

Example.3)

Let, if 25 small squares out of 100 squares are considered, then twenty five

25

small squares make eight hundredths or ------- of the large square.

100

In above fraction, there are two zero in denominator, so decimal point or dot should move two steps left of numerator

25

so,  -------- = 0.25

100

Example.4)

25         8425

84 ------ = --------

100         100

In above fraction, there are two zero in denominator, so decimal point or dot should move two steps left of numerator.

8425

-------- = 84.25

100

It is read as i) eighty four and twenty-five hundredths

ii) eighty four point two five

NOTE: The digits after the decimal point are read one by one. (like 84.25 is read as eighty four point two five and not as eighty four point twenty five)

In 84.25, the integral part (the part written before decimal point) is 84 and the decimal part (the part written after the decimal point) is 25.
