question: How many thousands of square kilometers does Canada have?

question: How many hundreds of square kilometers of Canada is freshwater?

question: Gina says that you can tell how many tens, hundreds or thousands are in a number by moving the decimal point. Is she correct? Why or why not?

Please help me with step by step details. Thanks.

**DrBob222**, Monday, September 28, 2009 at 5:18pm10,000,000/1,000 = 10,000

9,100,000/100 = 91,000

Gina is right. Try it. When dividing by 10 move the decimal point to the left. Since we are dividing by 1000 (for the first one) move the decimal to the left 3 places to leave 10,000.

For the freshwater, move the decimal to the left 2 places to obtain 91,000.
