There is an interesting feature of multiplying decimals by powers of 10. Consider the following multiplications.
Multiplication | Number of Zeros in the Power of 10 | Number of Positions the Decimal Point Has Been Moved to the Right |
$\text{10}\cdot 8\text{.}\text{315274}=\text{83}\text{.}\text{15274}$ | 1 | 1 |
$\text{100}\cdot 8\text{.}\text{315274}=\text{831}\text{.}\text{5274}$ | 2 | 2 |
$\mathrm{1,}\text{000}\cdot 8\text{.}\text{315274}=\mathrm{8,}\text{315}\text{.}\text{274}$ | 3 | 3 |
$\text{10},\text{000}\cdot 8\text{.}\text{315274}=\text{83},\text{152}\text{.}\text{74}$ | 4 | 4 |
Find the following products.
$\text{100}\cdot \text{34}\text{.}\text{876}$ . Since there are 2 zeros in 100, Move the decimal point in 34.876 two places to the right.
$\mathrm{1,}\text{000}\cdot 4\text{.}\text{8058}$ . Since there are 3 zeros in 1,000, move the decimal point in 4.8058 three places to the right.
$\text{10},\text{000}\cdot \text{56}\text{.}\text{82}$ . Since there are 4 zeros in 10,000, move the decimal point in 56.82 four places to the right. We will have to add two zeros in order to obtain the four places.
Since there is no fractional part, we can drop the decimal point.

Recalling that the word "of" translates to the arithmetic operation of multiplication, let's observe the following multiplications.
Find 4.1 of 3.8.
Translating "of" to "×", we get
$\begin{array}{c}\hfill 4.1\\ \hfill \underline{\times 3.8}\\ \hfill 328\\ \hfill \underline{123\text{}}\\ \hfill 15.58\end{array}$
Thus, 4.1 of 3.8 is 15.58.
Find 0.95 of the sum of 2.6 and 0.8.
We first find the sum of 2.6 and 0.8.
$\begin{array}{c}\hfill 2.6\\ \hfill \underline{+0.8}\\ \hfill 3.4\end{array}$
Now find 0.95 of 3.4
$\begin{array}{c}\hfill 3.4\\ \hfill \underline{\times 0.95}\\ \hfill 170\\ \hfill \underline{306\text{}}\\ \hfill 3.230\end{array}$
Thus, 0.95 of $(2\text{.}\text{6}+\text{0}\text{.}8)$ is 3.230.
