## An Introduction to Tenths

what is a tenth we can draw a rectangle

to represent one hole

we can then divide the rectangle into

ten equal parts coloring one of the ten

parts gives us the fraction 1/10

we can also ride 1/10 as the decimal

number zero point one we can show one

tenth on a place value chart there are

zero ones and one tenth

riot has a decimal the hole has been

divided into ten equal parts and one two

three four five six of the parts are

colored six tenths are colored we can

also write this as the decimal zero

point six we can show six tenths on a

place value chart there are zero ones

and six tenths

right as a decimal here we have one hole

and I tense

one and eight tenths are coloured we can

write this as the decimal 1.8 1.8 has

one one and a tenths

right as a decimal the red arrow is

pointing to a number on the number line

between 13 and 14 each step on the

number line shows one tenth

let's count on from thirteen point five

thirteen point five six seven eight nine

the red arrow is pointing to the decimal

thirteen point nine

13.9 has won ten three ones and nine

tenths
