00:00:00.940 --> 00:00:03.910
Write 14 hundredths as a decimal.
00:00:06.260 --> 00:00:10.300
Here’s a chart to help us remember what we know about place value.
00:00:11.800 --> 00:00:17.380
To the right of the decimal point, we deal with values that are less than zero.
00:00:19.140 --> 00:00:26.960
We’re working with 14 hundredths which we know is a faction, it’s a piece that’s less than zero.
00:00:28.980 --> 00:00:38.980
But we can’t put 14 in the hundredths box because in the hundredths place we can only put single digits from zero to nine.
00:00:40.770 --> 00:00:45.700
So we need to break our hundredths up into two different pieces.
00:00:47.160 --> 00:00:54.620
What we can say is we can say that 14 hundredths equals 10 hundredths plus four hundredths.
00:00:55.970 --> 00:01:06.210
And our zeros here cancel each other out, the zero in the numerator and the zero in the denominator, leaving us with one tenth.
00:01:06.950 --> 00:01:15.150
So what we can say is that 14 hundredths equals one tenth plus four hundredths.
00:01:16.260 --> 00:01:22.700
We put the one in the tenths place and the four in the hundredths place.
00:01:24.420 --> 00:01:30.900
14 hundredths written as a decimal looks like this: 0.14.
