Model Decimals (to hundredths) Step 1:
Identify the marks between whole numbers Step 2:
Find the two marks that Point B is between on the number line. Step 3:
__3________4______B__5_________6______ The vertical
marks in between the whole numbers are half, so between the 3 and the 4 the mark
represents 3 ½ or 3.5. The mark between 4 and 5 would be 4 ½
or 4.5. Point B is
between the numbers 4 ½ and 5.
Compare to the numbers in
the list: 5.2, 4.8, 4.3, or 3.8.
Point B best represents 4.8. Place Value in

is in the thousandths place in the number 3,207.1854? The digit 5 is in the
thousandths place because it is 3 places after the decimal and 3 places after
the decimal is the thousandths place. Which digit is in the ten
thousandths place in the number 4,318.2967? The digit 7 is in the ten
