    decimal help please

    Hi everyone I am having problems interpreting a 3000ml measuring jug for a pesticide sprayer assessment i have to do. Basically i have to read the level of water in the jug and record it. e.g if it is on the scale nothces like 2200ml i can easily work out that it is 2.2 in litres. but if it fulls on the notches scales between the numbered ones i get confused how to write it in litres decimals.

    just an example if the scale in ml went up in 20ml per hundred ml, and it landed on the second notch up from 2200ml would that be written 2.22 in litres??

    In relation to the litres on the measuring jug i am confused how the numbers after the decimal relate to tens and hundreds. please help!!!!

    with regards mark
