just wanted to make sure this answer is correct. I am looking for the decimal place of the number 4 in this number 2.84905
Isn't the 4 in the thousanths place? My brain is fried from this math final.
Thanks for your help, it is greatly appreciated.

cindy,
Hi sue,
So it's the hundredths place right?

Ms. Sue,
Right.
Think of money. $2.84 is ten dimes (ten in a dollar) and four pennies (100 in a dollar).
