IV.   From Decimal Notation to Fractional Notation
A. Remember that we can think of decimals in terms of fractions.
3 7       4     2       1
3.7421                   
1 10 100 1000 10000
30000 7000         400     20      1
                             
10000 10000 10000 10000 10000
37421
=
10000
B. Process of converting from decimal to fractional notation.
1. The digits to the right of the decimal point is the numerator of the fraction.
2. The denominator is 10 for tenths, 100 for hundredths, 1000 for thousandths, and so on.
3. If the decimal point has a whole number, it will be written as a mixed number with the
same whole number part.
C. Another Process
1. Read the decimal.      (three and twenty-four hundredths)           3.24
24
2. Write as a mixed numeral.                                          3
100
D. Examples (don’t simplify)
1) 24.003

2) 0.34251

3) 5.093

4.2, Rounding Decimals
I.     A. Use the same method as with whole numbers.
B. Using the number line, round 1.34 to the nearest tenth.

1.30                            1.40
C. Without the number line:
1. Locate the digits place.
2. Look at the number to the right. If it is 4 or smaller, it stays the same. If it is 5 or larger,
it rounds up.
D. Examples: Round each number to the nearest tenth, hundredth, & thousandth.

Tenth               Hundredth                  Thousandth
1) 45.2491

2) 47892

3) 0.99874

II.Rounding Money Amounts:
A. Place Value for Money

II.      Rounding Money
A. To the nearest cent
1) \$2.345                      2) \$0.695                  3) \$0.995

B. To the nearest dollar
1) \$345.35                     2) \$456.98                 3) \$0.789

A. Make sure to line-up the decimal points.

B. Examples
1) 34.298 + 127.93 =           2)7.45 + 0.241 + 27.8 =         3) 23.4 + 0.098 +34 =

II.         Subtraction
A. Similar to addition but must use zeroes for missing places.
B. Examples
1) 38.213 – 12.87 =            2) 18.03 – 8.203 =              3) 2210 – 28.9876 =

4.4, Multiplying Decimals
I.     Process for multiplying and examples
A. Process
1. Multiply the numbers (the factors) as if they were whole numbers.              24.1
X.008
2. After multiplying count the number of decimal places in the factors.
3. Use that sum to find the decimal’s place. Start at the far right and count
the decimal places to the left.
4. You may need to add extra zeroes on the left side to get the correct number of decimal
places.
3
B. Examples
1) 0.093 x 0.008                 2) 0.032 x 0.00081               3) (0.11)(0.00025)

4.5, Dividing Decimals
I.     Whole-Number Divisors
A. Process
1. Place the decimal point directly above the decimal point in the dividend.

32 81.92
2. Divide as you would a whole number.

B. Examples

1) 82 38.54                                  2)      15 22.5

C. Writing extra zeroes to divide
1) 30  8                                     2)      78

II.   Division that are not whole numbers
A. Consider this:            0.83 406.7
1. If you multiply the divisor by 100 you get a whole number. You must also multiply
the dividend and end up with 83 406.7
2. Simpler method
a. Move the decimal point in the divisor to make a whole number.
b. Move the decimal point in the dividend the same number of places as the divisor.
.83 406.7
c. Place the decimal point right above and divide.
B. Examples

1)    5.848  8.6                2)    0.64 12                    3)      25 1.6

D. Dividing and rounding the quotient
1) Divide as you normally would.
2) Occasionally, the quotient will either repeat or go on for a very long time. Check the
directions to see if you have been instructed to round your answer to a particular place.
3) Remember to go one more than you are asked to round so that you will know the
correct rounding. Example: If you are round to the nearest hundredth, you must go out
to the thousandths in order to round.
4) Try these and round to the nearest hundredth:
a) 7 ÷ 1.3                                 b) 5.3091 ÷ 6.2

III. Order of operations
A. Rules
1. P
2. E
3. M/D
4. A/S
B. Examples
1) 5  0.006  2  3.42  0.1                                                          
2) 102   3  0.24   2.4   0.21  0.092 
