INTRODUCTION OF DECIMAL

__DECIMAL__

**In the Decimal
process there are two-part 1) Integral Part and 2) Fractional Part and
the both part is separated by decimal point which is denoted by ‘.’. Integral
part of the decimal is placed just left side of the decimal point and the fractional
part is placed right side of the decimal point. In right side of the decimal point
there are a unit which is to be placed as per the place value of unit such as ones
(1 ^{st} place), tens (2^{nd} Place), hundreds (3^{rd}
place),……so on and after the right side of the decimal point unit is placed as per
the place value such as tenths (1^{st} decimal place), hundredths (2^{nd}
decimal place), thousandths (3^{rd} decimal place)**

**Decimal number is to
be shown or organized like below –**

**Thousands**** Hundreds Tens Ones
(Decimal Point‘.’) Tenths Hundredths Thousandths**

**
1000 100 10
1 .
1/10 1/100 1/1000**

**As an example if
8235.354 is a number then 8235 is an integral part of the decimal number and 354 is the fractional part of a decimal number. If we try to split as per their place value
then it can be written as –**

**8 X 1000 + 2 X 100 +
3 X 10 + 5 X 1 + 3 X 1/10 + 5 X 1/100 + 4 X 1/1000**

**It would be read as 8
thousands 2 hundred thirty-five point three five four**
