THe hundreds position is the 6 at the start (it is 600) therefore we halve that to get 3, this is our number:

658.433

in the number:1582.9604

tenths place is: 9

thousandths place is: 0

tens: 8

thousands: 1

the way to work this out is to consider the number as separate bits,

1582.9604 is the same as:

1000 (we have 1 thousand)

+500 (5 hundreds)

+80 (8 tens)

+2 (2 ones, or units)

+0.9 (9 tenths)

+0.06 (6 hundredths)

+0.000 (0 thousandths)

+0.0004 (4 ten thousandths)

write the following decimals as fractions:

0.4=

We have 4 tenths. 1 tenth is 1/10 therefore 4 tenths is**4/10**.

16.01=

We have 16 and 1 hundredth, so we have 16 and 1/100, there is no need to put this as 1 fraction, but if you did the answer would be 1601/100.

round the number 14.538

tenth=14.5

When we round we take the number just after the number we want to round.

Here we want the tenths which is 5, so we look at 3 and see if it is equal to or above 5, 3 is not therefore we round down (change it to zero), so 5 stays the same.

ten=10

For the tens we are looking at the 1, the number after it is 4 (which is not 5 or higher, so we round down(change it to 0), and 1 stays the same).

I hope this helped.
