# Decimal Numbers 3 (Medium)

Welcome to the third quiz in our Medium section of Eleven Plus maths quizzes on Decimal Numbers. If you have played the previous ones, then you should sail through this, armed with what you have already learned. We’ll ask you to convert decimals into fractions, and vice versa, and we’ll also see whether you know the rules when multiplying or dividing decimals by multiples of ten.

Here’s a recap:

• When dividing, move the digits to the right
• When multiplying, move the digits to the left
• If you divide/multiply by 10, move the digits one place to the left/right
• If you divide/multiply by 100, move the digits two places to the left/right
• If you divide/multiply by 1,000, move the digits three places to the left/right
