Copy of DIY Maths: Multiplying decimals

MULTIPLYING DECIMALS

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

 

The video shows you how to multiply two decimal numbers together. The video only shows one example. If you need to see other worked examples, I encourage you to go to youtube and search on "decimal multiplication".

 

Did you know?

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!
