Remember!

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 $\frac{1}{10}$110 to a decimal, the $1$1 will go in the tenths column of our place value table since the denominator is $10$10.
