To multiply decimal numbers:

1. Multiply the numbers just as if they were whole numbers.

  • Line up the numbers on the right – do not align the decimal points.
  • Starting on the right, multiply each digit in the top number by each digit in the bottom number, just as with whole numbers.
  • Add the products.

2. Place the decimal point in the answer by starting at the right and moving a number of places equal to the sum of the decimal places in both numbers multiplied.

Try these for homework (Make sure to post your answers):

A. 3.23 X 1.7= B. 4.29 X 2.3=
