## Place Value of digits in decimals

 Decimal Point Place Value of digits in decimals Expanded Form of Decimal Read Decimals Decimal Places Decimal to Fraction Decimal to Mixed Fraction Decimal to Lowest Fractional form Decimal into Percentage Like Decimals Unlike Decimals Difference Like & Unlike Decimals Comparing or Ordering Decimals Ascending Order of Decimals Descending Order of Decimals Multiplication of Decimals Division of Decimals

We know that the place value of any natural number will keep increasing ten times, as we move from right of a numbers towards it's left.
E.g. in a number 1234.
Place values of:
Digit 4 = 1 i.e. ones
Digit 3 = 1 X 10 = 10 i.e. tens
Digit 2 = 10 X 10 = 100 i.e. hundreds
Digit 1 = 100 X 10 = 1000 i.e. thousands

And you can see that if you move from left to right the place value started decreasing by one-tenth.
E.g. in a number 1234
Place values of:
Digit 1 = 1000 i.e. thousands
Digit 2 = 1000 ÷ 10 = 100 i.e. hundreds
Digit 3 = 100 ÷ 10 = 10 i.e. tens
Digit 4 = 10 ÷ 10 = 1 i.e. ones

Now, in case of decimals we move from left of decimal point towards right and place values will further decreases by one-tenth.
E.g. 1234.567
So the place values will be as:
Digit 1 = 1000 i.e. thousands
Digit 2 = 1000 ÷ 10 = 100 i.e. hundreds
Digit 3 = 100 ÷ 10 = 10 i.e. tens
Digit 4 = 10 ÷ 10 = 1 i.e. ones
 Digit 5 = 1 ÷ 10 = 110 i.e. tenths

 Digit 6 = 110 ÷ 10 = 1100 i.e. hundredths

 Digit 7 = 1100 ÷ 110 = 11000 i.e. thousandths
