Write 0.92 in words.

Here are the steps we need to follow. First, we read the digits to the right of the decimal point as a whole number. For the number 0.92, we would look at the nine two together. When we see that, we read it as 92. Writing 92 in words looks like this, spelled n-i-n-e-t-y dash t-w-o.

The second step is to say the place value name for the last digit, the digit all the way on the right. The two is the last digit in this number. What is its place value? That two is in the hundredths place. And we spell hundredths h-u-n-d-r-e-d-t-h-s. From there, we take those two phrases and put them together. 0.92 written in words is ninety-two hundredths.
