What is the correct rule for multiplying by a whole number beginning with 1 and followed by one or more zeros, e.g. multiplying by 10, 100, 1,000, ... ?
When multiplying by such a number, move the decimal point to the right by the same number of zeros as in the number
When multiplying by such a number, move the decimal point to the left by the same number of zeros as in the number
When multiplying by such a number, move the decimal point to the right by the same number of digits as in the number
When multiplying by such a number, move the decimal point to the left by the same number of digits as in the number
For example, 1,000 × 0.234 = 234: the decimal point has moved three places to the right = the number of zeros in one thousand. The rule for division is as follows: When dividing by such a number, move the decimal point to the left by the same number of zeros as in the number, e.g. 1.234 ÷ 1,000 = 0.001234: the decimal point has moved three places to the left = the number of zeros in one thousand
