Welcome to the third in our Easy section of Eleven Plus maths quizzes on decimal numbers. In it we look in particular at the value of those digits placed after the decimal point. You know that, in whole numbers, the columns read right to left are for units, tens, hundreds, thousands etc. Well. In decimal numbers, it’s almost the same, but with no ‘units’ column - and in reverse!
Perhaps this will help make it clearer:
The fractions get smaller and smaller as you read left to right.
Have a go at this quiz and see how well you understand decimals. Once you get all questions right first time, why not move on to our next quiz for more of a challenge!
