Decimals - Hundredths

Home > By Subject > Place Value > With Decimals - Hundredths
Block showing one whole unit 1 whole unit can be split into 100 equal parts. Each part is one hundredth block showing 100 hundredths

 

Or we can show the same thing this way:

Block showing one whole unit Block showing one whole split into tenths block showing 100 hundredths
block showing one hundredth
One (1) whole unit Split into ten equal parts (tenths) Each tenth split into ten equal parts Each part is one hundredth

 

Numbers with place value

When we write numbers with hundredths using decimals we use a decimal point and places to the right of this decimal point. The hundredth place is two places to the right of the decimal point.

  label for decimal point holder lable for tenths place label for hundredths place
73/100 = .73 . 7 3
We read this number as seventy-three hundredths
