## FAQs on Mindmap: Decimals - Mathematics (Maths) Class 6

 1. What are decimals and how are they different from whole numbers?
Decimals are a way to represent parts of a whole number. They are different from whole numbers because they include a decimal point and digits after it, representing values less than one. Whole numbers, on the other hand, do not have decimal parts and are used to represent complete quantities.
 2. How do you read and pronounce decimals?
To read and pronounce decimals, we say the whole number part followed by the word "and" and then the digits after the decimal point. For example, the decimal 3.25 is read as "three and twenty-five hundredths."
 3. How do you compare decimals?
To compare decimals, start by comparing the whole number parts. If they are equal, then compare the digits after the decimal point from left to right until you find the first digit that is different. The decimal with the larger digit at that place value is greater.
 4. How do you add and subtract decimals?
To add and subtract decimals, align the decimal points of the numbers being operated on. Then, perform the addition or subtraction as you would with whole numbers. Finally, place the decimal point in the answer directly below the decimal points in the given numbers.
 5. How do you convert decimals into fractions?
To convert decimals into fractions, count the number of digits after the decimal point. Write the decimal as the numerator, and the denominator is a 1 followed by the same number of zeroes as the number of decimal places. Simplify the fraction if possible. For example, 0.75 can be written as 75/100, which simplifies to 3/4.
