We can describe numbers smaller than one by using fractions or decimals. Today, the decimal system is more common than fractions.
To indicate a decimal number we use a point (.) and this includes money such as dollars and cents.
Look at these decimal examples:
|We write:||We say:|
|0.3||nought point three
zero point three
|3.45||three point four five
(NOT three point forty-five)
|98.4||ninety-eight point four|
|$1.55||one dollar, fifty-five cents
one dollar, fifty-five
|$700.00||seven hundred dollars|
|€3,500.50||three thousand five hundred euro and fifty cents
three thousand five hundred euro, fifty cents
