00:00:00.840 --> 00:00:22.720
Complete the following pattern: 8938.3, 893.83, 98.383, blank, blank, blank.
00:00:23.880 --> 00:00:33.920
So notice, they use all of the same digits, all of the same numbers: eight then nine then three then eight then three.
00:00:34.440 --> 00:00:37.360
What moves is the decimal point.
00:00:37.840 --> 00:00:41.800
It moves to the left, one every time.
00:00:42.440 --> 00:00:49.400
First, we had 8938.3.
00:00:50.080 --> 00:00:57.840
Then it moved here to be 893.83.
00:00:58.400 --> 00:01:06.240
And then it moved here to be 89.383.
00:01:06.680 --> 00:01:16.920
Instead of saying we’re moving the decimal point to the left one, we could also think of it as dividing by 10.
00:01:17.520 --> 00:01:32.480
So if we would take 89.383 and divide it by 10, we would get 8.9383.
00:01:33.320 --> 00:01:43.840
And dividing that number by 10, we will need to add a zero out-front because now the decimal point is all the way in the front.
00:01:44.520 --> 00:01:53.200
So now, we have 0.89383.
00:01:53.880 --> 00:02:05.480
Repeating the pattern again, we get 0.089383.
00:02:06.280 --> 00:02:30.560
So following the pattern, we get 8.9383, 0.89383, and 0.089383.
