Dividing Decimals: Dividing decimals is a math process that involves using the inverse operation of multiplication of decimals to find the answer when dividing two numbers. The answer will have the same number of decimal places as the number with the most decimal places. Decimal Place Value: Decimal place value is the amount each number in a decimal is worth, depending on its place in the decimal. The number farthest to the right is the ones place, the number to the left is the tenths place, and so on. Rounding Decimals: Rounding decimals is a math process that involves changing a decimal to the nearest whole number or tenths, hundredths, or thousandths place by looking at the digit to the right of the place you are rounding to. If the digit is 5 or more, you round up. If the digit is 4 or less, you round down.

The world record for calculating the decimal equivalent of 1/3 (0.3333333...) was set in 2015 by an Australian student. He was able to recite it up to 10,000 decimal places! The decimal 0.999... is equal to 1. This is because 0.999... is the same as 0.9 + 0.09 + 0.009 + 0.0009 + .... and this is the same as 1. The smallest non-zero decimal number is 0.000000001.
