Correct answer : (1)

2.

The shaded region on the grid represents forty hundredths. How is this decimal written as a numeral?

a. | 0.48 | ||

b. | 0.42 | ||

c. | 0.46 | ||

d. | 0.40 |

Correct answer : (4)

3.

Choose the decimal for the number that represents the shaded portion in the model.

a. | 0.36 | ||

b. | 0.32 | ||

c. | 0.38 | ||

d. | 0.30 |

The fraction of the number of the squares shaded = 36 hundredths =

[The number of squares shaded = 36.]

The decimal that represents the number of squares shaded = 0.36.

Correct answer : (1)

4.

What decimal does this model represent?

a. | 1.5 | ||

b. | 15 | ||

c. | 0.15 | ||

d. | 5.1 |

The first grid is 10 tenths and is hence 1 whole and the second grid five tenths.

The word name to represent the number shown by the grid is one and five tenths or can be written as 1.5 in decimal form.

[10 tenths = 1 whole which represents the first grid as the whole grid is colored.]

Correct answer : (1)

5.

Which of the models represents 0.9?

a. | Model 4 | ||

b. | Model 2 | ||

c. | Model 3 | ||

d. | Model 1 |

So, 0.9 in the tenths model should have 9 colored strips out of ten equally spaced strips.

[Since 0.9 = 0.1 × 9.]

Among the choices, Model 4 represents the decimal 0.9.

[Model 4 contains 9 equal strips (tenths).]

Correct answer : (1)

6.

Identify the decimal that the shaded area shows.

a. | 0.5 | ||

b. | 5.0 | ||

c. | 0.6 | ||

d. | 0.4 |

Out of 10 grids, 5 are shaded. Therefore the decimal that the shaded area shows is 0.5.

Correct answer : (1)

7.

Identify the word name for the decimal that the shaded area represents.

a. | ten tenths | ||

b. | seven tens | ||

c. | three tenths | ||

d. | seven tenths |

[Seven out of ten equal parts are shaded in the tenths grid shown.]

So the word name for the decimal shown is seven tenths.

Correct answer : (4)

8.

Which of the figures represents 0.4?

a. | Figure 4 | ||

b. | Figure 2 | ||

c. | Figure 1 | ||

d. | Figure 3 |

The shaded area in the tenths grid represents the decimal.

Therefore the decimal 0.4 is represented by Figure 3.

Correct answer : (4)

9.

Which of the following is the word name for the decimal represented by the shaded area?

a. | four tenths | ||

b. | three tens | ||

c. | seven tenths | ||

d. | three tenths |

[Three out of ten equal parts are shaded in the tenths grid shown.]

So, the word name for the decimal shown is three tenths.

Correct answer : (4)

10.

a. | one and five tenths | ||

b. | nine tenths | ||

c. | five tenths | ||

d. | eight tenths |

[There are two tenths grids shown with the first one being completely shaded and in the second one, five out of ten equal parts are shaded.]

So, the word name for the decimal shown is one and five tenths.
