Video Transcript

Write 0.026 in words.

To name this value, we take the digits to the right of the decimal place and say them as if they were a whole number. In our case, we have a two and a six — 26. We write that as twenty dash six.

After that, we need to identify the digit furthest to the right. Here’s a six. And what place value is this six located in? The digit six is located in the thousandths place. And so we write thousandths after the twenty-six.

The number 0.026 is twenty-six thousandths. And it can be written as twenty dash six space thousandths — twenty-six thousandths.
