Multiplying decimals at a glance

 

When doing multiplication of decimals, the first step is to multiply the numbers as if there were no decimal points. For example, for the calculation 3.6 times 1.84, we would begin by calculating multiplying the whole numbers 36 times 184. To do this, we would use an appropriate method for two and three digit multiplication, such as the grid method, giving 36 times 184 = 6624. We then count the total number of decimal places for both decimals. In this case, the total number of decimal places is 1+2=3. We divide the integer answer by 10 that many times. So 6624 div 10^{3} = 6.624.

 

Knowledge of decimal place values of tenths, hundredths, and thousandths is useful here.

 

Multiplying decimals is used widely with money and metric conversions.

 

Looking forward, students can then progress to additional decimals worksheets and other number worksheets, for example a multiplying and dividing decimals worksheet or an order of operations worksheet.
