Idea summary

When converting a fraction to a decimal, the last digit of our decimal goes in the place value column with the same name as the denominator of our fraction.

For example, if we are converting the fraction \dfrac{1}{10} to a decimal, the 1 will go in the tenths column of our place value table since the denominator is 10.

Recognise that the place value system can be extended to tenths and hundredths. Make connections between fractions and decimal notation
