Sample set a

6.8

Some people read this as "six point eight." This phrasing gets the message across, but technically, "six and eight tenths" is the correct phrasing.

14.116

0.0019

81

Eighty-one

In this problem, the indication is that any whole number is a decimal fraction. Whole numbers are often called decimal numbers .

$\text{81}=\text{81}\text{.}0$

Practice set a

Writing a decimal fraction

To write a decimal fraction,
1. Write the whole number part.
2. Write a decimal point for the word "and."
3. Write the decimal part of the number so that the right-most digit appears in the position indicated in the word name. If necessary, insert zeros to the right of the decimal point in order that the right-most digit appears in the correct position.

Sample set b

Write each number.

Thirty-one and twelve hundredths.

The decimal position indicated is the hundredths position.

31.12

Two and three hundred-thousandths.

The decimal position indicated is the hundred thousandths. We'll need to insert enough zeros to the immediate right of the decimal point in order to locate the 3 in the correct position.

2.00003

Six thousand twenty-seven and one hundred four millionths.

The decimal position indicated is the millionths position. We'll need to insert enough zeros to the immediate right of the decimal point in order to locate the 4 in the correct position.

where we get a research paper on Nano chemistry....?
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level

what is variations in raman spectra for nanomaterials
I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.

what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?
what is a peer
What is meant by 'nano scale'?
What is STMs full form?
LITNING
scanning tunneling microscope
Sahil
how nano science is used for hydrophobicity
Santosh
Do u think that Graphene and Fullrene fiber can be used to make Air Plane body structure the lightest and strongest. Rafiq
