Writing decimals in words

Writing decimals in words should not be hard if you understood my lesson about reading and writing whole numbers


Do not try to study this lesson before getting a good solid understanding of how read and write whole numbers.

To read and write decimals, use the following steps:

Step #1

First, read the digits to the left of the decimal point as a whole number.

Step #2

Say and for the decimal point.

Step #3

Read the digits to the right of the decimal point as a whole number

Step #4

Say the place name of the last digit.

Examples:

25.578  is read twenty-five and five hundred seventy-eight thousandths

7000.14   is read seven thousand and fourteen hundredths

0.002  is read two thousandths

Notice that there is no need to say zero and two thousandths.

250.00035  is read two hundred fifty and thirty five hundred-thousandths.
