## Decimals

Question 1.
Write the following as numbers in the given table: Solution:
On filling the given table, we have Question 2.
Write the following decimals in the place value table:

(a) 19.4
(b) 0.3
(c) 10.6
(d) 205

Solution:
Let us make a common place value table, assigning appropriate place value to the digits in the given numbers. We have, Question 3.
Write each of the following as decimals:

(a) Seven- tenths
(b) Two tens and nine-tenths
(c) Fourteen point six
(d) One hundred and two ones
(e) Six hti red point eight

Solution:
(a) Seven-tenths = $\frac { 7 }{ 10 }$ = 0.7
(b) Two tens, 9 – tenths = 20 + $\frac { 9 }{ 10 }$ = 20.9
(c) Fourteen point six = 14.6
(d) One Hundred and 2-ones = 1 x 100 + 0 x 10 + 2 x 1 + 0 x $\frac { 1 }{ 10 }$
= 100 + 0 + 2 = 102.0
(e) Six hundred point eight = 600.8

Solution:  Question 7.
Between which two whole numbers on the number line are the given numbers lie?

Which of these whole numbers is nearer the number? (a) 0.8
(b) 5.1
(c) 2.6
(d) 6.4
(e) 9.1
(f) 4.9

Solution: Question 8.
Show the following numbers on the number line.

(a) 0.2
(b) 1.9
(c) 1.1
(d) 2.5

Solution:
(a)
Since 0.2 > 0 but <1. There are 2 tenth in it. Divide the unit length between 0 and 1 into 10 equal parts and take 2 parts as shown below. Thus, A represents 0.2.

(b)
Since 1 < 1.9 < 2. Divide the unit length between 1 and 2 into 10 equal parts and take 9 parts as shown below. Thus, A represents 1.9.

(c)
Since 1 < 1.1 < 2. Divide the unit length between 1 and 2 into 10 equal parts and take 1 part as shown below. Thus, A represents 1.1.

(d)
Since 2 < 2.5 < 3. Divide the unit length between 2 and 3 into 10 equal parts and take 5 parts as shown below. Thus, A represents 2.5. Question 9.
Write the decimal number represented by the points A, B, C, D on the given number line Solution:
Since A lies between 0 and 1 and the unit length between 0 and 1 stands divided in 10 equal parts. Also A is at the 8th point.
Thus, A represents 0.8.
Since, B lies between 1 and 2 and the unit length between 1 and 2 stands divided in 10 equal parts. Also, B lies 3 points ahead of 1. Therefore, B represents 1.3.
Since C and D lies between 2 and 3 and the unit length between 2 and 3 stands divided between 2 and 3 in 10 equal parts. Also C and D respectively lies 2 and 9 points ahead of 2.
∴ C represents 2.2 and D represents 2.9.
