A decimal point '.' separates smaller numbers from larger numbers. Numbers that are less than '1' go to the right of a decimal point while numbers '1' and larger are placed to the left of the decimal point. Fractions also separate larger numbers from smaller numbers and tell us the same things as a decimal number. For example, the decimal 76.9 tells us that the larger number is 76 as it is to the left of the decimal and the '9' is smaller as it is to the right of the decimal and is equal to 9 tenths of the number '1'. As a fraction, this would look like: 76 9⁄10
If the decimal number was 4.006, this would tell us that the larger number is 4 as it is to the left of the decimal and the smaller number is 6 as it is to the right and is equal to 6 one thousandths. As a fraction it would look like:
