## Things to remember

1. To understand the parts of one whole (i.e. a unit) we represent a unit by a block. One block divided into 10 equal parts means each part is 1/10(one-tenth) of a unit. It can be written as 0.1 in decimal notation. The dot represents the decimal point and it comes between the units place and the tenths place.
2. Every fraction with denominator 10 can be written in decimal notation and vice-versa.
3. One block divided into 100 equal parts means each part is ( 1/100 )(one-hundredth) of a unit. It can be written as 0.01 in decimal notation.
4. Every fraction with denominator 100 can be written in decimal notation and vice-versa.
5. In the place value table, as we go from left to the right, the multiplying factor becomes 1/10 of the previous factor.
6. All decimals can also be represented on a number line.
7. Every decimal can be written as a fraction.
8. Any two decimal numbers can be compared among themselves. The comparison can start with the whole part. If the whole parts are equal then the tenth parts can be compared and so on.
9. Decimals are used in many ways in our lives. For example, in representing units of money, length and weight.
1. Find the sum in each of the following :
1. 0.007 + 8.5 + 30.08
2. 15 + 0.632 + 13.8
3. 27.076 + 0.55 + 0.004
4. 25.65 + 9.005 + 3.7
5. 0.75 + 10.425 + 2
6. 280.69 + 25.2 + 38
1. 0.007 + 8.5 + 30.08 = 38.587
2. 15 + 0.632 + 13.8 = 29.432
3. 27.076 + 0.55 + 0.004 = 27.63
4. 25.65 + 9.005 + 3.7 = 38.355
5. 0.75 + 10.425 + 2 = 13.175
6. 280.69 + 25.2 + 38 = 343.89
2. Rashid spent Rs 35.75 for Maths book and Rs 32.60 for Science book. Find the total amount spent by Rashid. Answer:
 The amount of money, Rashid spent for Maths book =Rs. 35.75 The amount of money, Rashid spent for Science book =Rs. 32.60 The total amount spent by Rashid = Rs 35.75 + 32.60 =Rs. 68.35
3. Radhika’s mother gave her Rs 10.50 and her father gave her Rs 15.80, find the total amount given to Radhika by the parents. Answer:
