**In this module, you can ****study how to multiply two decimal numbers together.**

** **

When you multiply two decimal numbers the answer could be smaller than either of the two starting numbers. For example, 0.2 x 0.3 = 0.06, which is smaller than both 0.2 and 0.3.

When you multiply two decimal numbers, you don't need to line up the decimal.

1 x 1 equals 1, but 0.1 x 0.1 does NOT equal 0.1!
