Place Value (Thousandths) Worksheets
What Are Decimal Place Values?
The word DECIMAL is based on the number ten, derived from a Latin word DECIMA; the tenth part. The decimal number means there is a Decimal Point.
Decimal Place Values  The place value is a positional system in which the position of a number to a point it determines its cost. In decimal or base ten systems, the value of the digits is based on the number 10. Every position in a decimal number has a value that is a power of the number 10. A decimal point separates the nonnegative powers of the number 10.

The decimal system lets us write numbers as large or as small as went like, using the decimal point. The digits can be placed to the left or right of a decimal point to show values more significant than one or less than one.
The decimal point is an essential part of any Decimal Number, and without it, we are lost and can't know what each position means.
On the of the decimal point is a whole number. As we move to the left, every place gets ten times bigger. The first digit on the right means tenths. As we move further to the right, every position gets ten times smaller.
