...two places; by 1000, three places, and so on. Rule : To multiply a decimal by any power of 10, shift **the decimal point as many places to the right as there are ciphers in the multiplier,** adding ciphers if necessary. Thus : 7-63x100000 = 763000. EXERCISE VI. By vulgar fractions and by decimals... | |
