Decimal

A decimal is a number that is not an integer and is expressed in neither fraction or percent form. The whole number portion is separated from the fractional portion by a decimal point (.) which looks identical to a period. Uses a base-10 place value system. For example, 3.5 would equal 35/10 or 350%. 5.68 would equal $5 + \frac{6}{10} + \frac{8}{100}$, or ${5}\frac{68}{100}$


Base Ten
