# Tuesday 5th May: Year 5 – Decimals up to 2 dp (Decimal place)

When we say the phrase ‘decimal place’ (dp) we are looking at the digits that appears in the place value chart after the decimal point.

if we are looking at ‘2 decimal places’ this means decimals that appear in the ‘tenths’ and the ‘hundredths’ columns.

Example: 4.50 , 3.25 , 6.78 – These are all decimals up to 2dp as they have a tenths and hundredths column.

Starter Challenge – Comment down below

Is 4.234 a decimal up to 2dp? Explain how you know.

Hint: I would draw the decimal place value chart out and insert the decimal number.

You must watch the home learning video below on decimals. After, scroll down and complete the questions.

I’ve done it on paper

• Aboubakar Y.

Dexter is wrong you can have many ways to partition 0.62 like you could do

0.32=+0.30
0.02+0.60
0.20+0.32
0.01+0.61
0.10+0.52
0.42+0.20

14. Musa A.

Mr Janjua I have printed everything out and done it i might try to send it!

15. Hishaam

4.234 is a decimal up to 2 Decimal points because the decimals are placed in the tenths and hundredths There is an extra column but the decimal point is still placed in the tenths and hundredths columns.

Im going to finish the writing part in my book so i can email it. :}

• Mr Mashford

I look forward to seeing it Hishaam, well done!

Starter Challenge-
Is 4.234 a decimal up to 2dp?
4.234 is not a decimal up to 2dp because it has 3 digits that are below the decimal point. Instead this is a decimal up to 3dp.

17. Youssif G.

4.234 is a decimal of 3 dp because there are three decimal places

I have done the task in my notebook

Mrs i didn’t know how number 3 or 1

• Mr Janjua

Sarina “is 4.234” a 2dp? You are correct it does have a tenths and hundredths column. But look, it has another digit, ‘4’, which would go into the ‘thousandths’ column – this would make it 3dp!

• Mrs Habib

Well done for trying your best Sarina. Check your answer for number 1 again it is not quite right. Draw a grid like I have shown you in class. Example 2.458 would have a ones column then a decimal point then a tenths column and a hundreths column. Draw it out and put the 2.458 under those columns in the correct places. Then try question number 1 again. Let me know if this helped you get the right answer.

• Mr Janjua

Well done Sarina.

For question 1) think about how many counters are in each column – so in the ones there are 0… so the decimal is 0. (? ?) – Can you finish the last two columns? Count the counters in each column.

3) What is the value of 4 in each column, so put each decimal into the place value chart. Is the 4 in the ones, tenths, etc? It will be different for each number.

Thank you!

Starter challenge:
Is 4.234 a decimal up to 2dp? Explain how you know
This is not a 2dp because it is over the hundreths and does not fit o the grid. It is actually a 3dp. We would need a thousandths.

• Miss Bhangu

Good effort Inaaya.

23. Farhan M.

4.234 is is not a number with 2dp it has 3dp because it has 3 numbers beyond the decimal point,2,3 and 4 and the sentence says “up to” so maximum 2dp and if I’m correct,2 is smaller than 3. I’ve done the rest but i couldn’t do the challenges of religious priorities

• Miss Bhangu

Well done Farhan! No worries, I understand. Please do come back to this task when you have time and complete those you have not yet completed. Thank you.

• Mr Mashford

Can you also make sure you respond to the other blogs as well Farhan. Thanks.

There are 0 ones, 2 tenths, and 3 hundreths. The number is 0.23. 3 0.62 = 0.5 add 0 .12
234 isn’t a decimal up to 2 dp . The reason why that is because if it was a decimal up to 2 dp it would be part of tenths and the hundredths column but this is a 3 dp decimal because it is both is in the tenths , hundredths and thousandths column. There are 0 ones, 5 tenths and 6 hundredths.
0.08
There are 0 ones, 0 tenths and 8 hundredths.
1.48
There are 1 ones, 4 tenths and 8 hundredths.
2.07
There are 2 ones, 0 tenths and 7 hundredths.
14.8
The 4 in this decimal point number is in
the ones column.
13.74
The 4 in this decimal point number is in the hundredths hundredths column.
8.04
The 4 in this decimal point number is in the hundredths column.
42.03
The 4 in this decimal point number is in the tens column.
106.48
The 4 in this decimal point number is in the tenths column.

Decimal up to 2d.p

Starter challenge

No, 4.234 is not a decimal place of 2d.p, this is because the number 4 on the right hand side of the sum is in the column that represent the thousandth.

Decimal up to 2d.p

1) 0.23 – there are 0 ones, 2 tenths and 3 hundredths. The number is 0.23

2)
a – 0.56 – there are 0 ones, 5 tenths and 6 hundredths.
b – 0.08 – there are 0 ones, 0 tenths and 8 hundredths.
c – 1.48 – there are 1 ones, 4 tenths and 8 hundredths.
d – 2.07 – there are 2 ones, 0 tenths and 7 hundredths.

3
a – 14.8 the value of 4 is ones.
b – 13.74 the value of 4 is hundredth.
c – 8.04 the value of 4 is hundredth.
d – 42.03 the value of 4 is tens
e – 106.48 the value of 4 is tenth.
f – 176.4 the value of 4 is tenth.

4
a – the number that has 5 in the tenth is 0.53.
b – 0.53, 1.53, 7.53.

5
a – 0.64 = 0.6 + 0.04
b – 0.53 = 0.5 + 0.03
c – 0.3 + 0.05 = 0.35
d – 0.06 + 0.8 = 0.86

6 – here is couple of ways to get 0.73.

0.07 + 0.3 = 0.73
0.7 + 0.03 = 0.73

7
a – I think it could be 0.35.
b – 0.31, 0.32, 0.33
c – my number has 3 digits, is greater 1, but less than 5, but has 3 tenths and 4 hundredth.

8
0.56 – 5 tenths and 6 hundredths.
60.05 – 6 tens and 5 hundredths.
5.56 – 5 ones, 5 tenths and 6 hundredths.
5.65 – 5 ones, 6 tenths and 5 hundredths.

9
a – no, she can make 5.20 the largest number.
b – yes, she can make 0.25 the smallest number.
c – 0.52, 5.20, 2.05, 0.25, 5.02 and 2.50

• Miss Cochrane

Great work!!

27. Luqman A.

4.234 is a decimal up to 2dp because it has the number 2 after the decimal point I figured the answer because it has dp after it

• Miss Bhangu

Luqman, what do you mean?
Your reasoning does not make that much sense. Please try to explain more clearly.
Good try!

28. Rayyan H.

4.234 is not a number up to 2 decimal places. I know this because there are 3 numbers after the decimal point. Done work in my book.

29. Shivani P.

I have completed this task. I will email it in l later.

• Miss Bhangu

Thank you Shivani.

30. Marvin A.

4.234 is a decimal up to 2dp because if you pretend 234 was a number, you have to round it to the nearest 10 so, 234 rounded to the nearest 10 is 230. That makes the answer for 4.234 be 4.23.

There are 0 ones, 2 tenths, and 3 hundredths. The number is 0.23.

I have done the place value chart and my Mum will send all work I have done.
There are 0 ones, 5 tenths, and 6 hundredths. There are 0 ones, 0 tenths, and 8 hundredths. There are 1 one, 4 tenths, and 8 hundredths. There are 2 ones, 0 tenths, and 7 hundredths.

The 4 in 14.8 is in the ones. The 4 in 13.74 is in the hundredths. The 4 in 8.04 is in the hundredths. The 4 in 42.03 is in the 10’s. The 4 in 106.48 is in the tenths. The 4 in 176.4 is in the tenths.

Alex could be thinking of 10 numbers.
1.3
1.31
1.32
1.33
1.34
1.35
1.36
1.37
1.38
1.39

These are the numbers that I matched.

5 ones, 6 tenths and 5 hundredths | 5.56
5 tenths and 6 hundredths | 0.56
5 ones, 5 tenths and 6 hundredths | 5.56
6 tens and 5 hundredths | 60.05

5.02 is not the largest number you can make because if you swap the tenths with the hundredths it changes the number to 5.2 which makes the answer false.
It is true that the smallest number you can make is 0.25 because 2 is the smallest number other than 0 so it has to go before 5.
Annie can make more than six numbers.

Dexter is wrong because I found 61 other ways but I am only going to do 3.
0.62 = 0.3 + 0.32
0.62 = 0.15 + 0.47
0.62 = 0.5 + 0.12
Teddy’s number is 40.46. Amir’s number is 46.2. Rosie’s number is 46.02. And Eva’s number is 2.64.

• Miss Cochrane

Do you think this statement is correct: “5.02 is not the largest number you can make because if you swap the tenths with the hundredths it changes the number to 5.2 which makes the answer false.”
If you have to use all 3 of the cards, and there is no need for a 0 after the 2 in 5.2, then is there an argument that 5.02 could be the largest number they can make with all 3 cards?

I have completed the work and also did the challenge in my homework book and will ask my dad to send it :)

• Mrs Khan

That is good to hear Rehan. Please make sure you complete the learning blogs on a daily basis.

40. 4.234 is a decimal up to 2dp because the decimals are appearing in the tenths and hundredths even though it has an extra column the decimal point still appears in the tenths and hundredths columns.
I did the rest in my homework book and am going to send the work.

• Mr Janjua

Hi Anis, its good to see you have done the work! Just be careful! 4.234 it not 2dp. Yes it has a tenths and hundredths column, but do not ignore the extra last column, which would be thousandths. This would make it 3dp. :)

• Miss Bhangu

Anis, are you sure?
Please check this again. Send any completed work to us. Thank you!

4.234 a not decimal up to 2dp becauase because it has tenths hundredths and thousandths

• Miss Bhangu

Good work Aidan.
Please make sure to send some work. Thank you.

42. Lakeysha M.

4.234 isn’t a decimal up to 2 dp . The reason why is because that if it was a decimal up to 2 dp it would be part of tenths and the hundredths column but this is a 3 dp decimal because it is both is in the tenths , hundredths and thousandths column.

• Mr Janjua

Well done Lakeysha, you have understood this well. Great reasoning and use of vocabulary!

Rosie-46.2
Amir- 2.64
Teddy-40.46
Eva-46.02

• Mr Janjua

Ebraheem please check this again. One decimal place would mean just a ‘tenths’ column, so 2.64 would not work as this has a tenths and a hundredths column, therefore showing 2 decimal places. I would in put these numbers into your place value chart above and have another go :)

No it is not because it jas one decimal

• Miss Bhangu

Learning tip: Take your time to watch the video, so that you understand it well. Then, have a go at answering the questions, writing it out the way it is shown and presented well. I would like you to try your best and have a go please. Once you have completed the task, please email your work to us. Thank you.

Starter: it is isn’t a decimal up to 2 because there is not a decimal in the tenths and hundredths !

Challenge!
Dexter is wrong!
Here are my thoughts!
0.62
0.00. 0.62

0.62
0.31. 0.31

0.62
0.04. 0.58

Match them up!
Teddy =
40.46
Amir=46.2
Rosie=46.02
Eva=2.64

• Mrs Sharma

Good effort Lexi
For starter your reasoning is not correct . look at the number again (hint : how many digits are there after decimal).
Well done for the rest :-)
Please ensure to respond to Spanish and music blog. Thank you
