Notes for session 7, Part A

Note 1

Most people don't think of decimals as fractions. Decimals are fractions, but we don't write the denominators of these fractions since they are powers of 10. Decimal numbers greater than 1 should really be called decimal fractions, because the word "decimal" actually refers only to the part to the right of the decimal point.
