Decimal number consist of two part, one is 1) Whole number part and another is 2) Decimal part, to read and write the decimal the whole number part is read like as normal number or as usual as per the place value of the number and the Decimal part is to be read and write as if it were a whole number, but the name of the place of last digit on the right is attached to the number. The word ‘AND’ is used for the decimal points.
Always read the decimal part digit wise and each place to the right of the decimal point is a decimal place. The value of zero ‘0’ after extreme right of the decimal point ( after the digit 1 to 9 ) is valueless or no-value but the value of zero ‘0’ between the decimal point and the number placed after the decimal point has immense value.
Similarly, the value of zero ‘0’ before extreme left of the decimal point ( before the digit 1 to 9 ) is valueless or no-value but the value of zero ‘0’ between the decimal point and the number placed before the decimal point has immense value.
1) 034.5600 = 34.56
2) 120.08 = 120.08
