1. ## help.....thank you

fill in the blank knowing that the digit in the thousandths position is half the digit in the hundreds position

658.43_

in the number:1582.9604
tenths place is:
thousandths place is:
tens:
thousands:

write the following decimals as fractions:
0.4=
16.01=

round the number 14.538
tenth=
ten=

tenths place is: 9
thousandths place is: 0
tens place is: 8
thousands is: 1
--

0.4 = 2/5
16.01 = 16 and 1/100

--
tenth: 14.5
ten: 10

3. 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.
