What is the simplest way of defining the phrase "decimal fractions?" A simple definition for my 4th grade class. Thanks alot.
Does this help?
I did see this definition but I was looking for something that gave a better explanation.
I felt the same way too Susan.. I don't think it gave me the definition I was looking for.
If I recall we use to define a "decimal fraction" as a fraction where the denominator is a power of 10
e.g .45 = 45/100 = 45/10^2
e.g. 0.00567 = 567/100000 = 567/10^5
