Question

1. Suppose you want to show how the structure of
the base-ten system remains the same to the left
and right of the decimal point. You have bundles
of toothpicks
and you want to use these bundled toothpicks to
represent a decimal. List at least three decimals
that you could use these bundles to represent and
explain your answer in each case.

    Answer:

    step 1: 0.001×10=0.01

    step 2 : 3 sets of 0.1, 4 sets of 0.01 and 6 sets of 0.001

    step 3: 3×0.1 +4×0.01 +6×0.01=0.346

    Step-by-step explanation:

    step 1

    consider that a single toothpick represent 0.001

    so a bundle of 10 toothpick will represent

    0.001 ×10=0.01

    also a 10 set of bundle toothpick represent

    0.01 ×10=0.1

    step 2

    now here 3 sets of 0.1, 4 sets of 0.01 and six sets of 0.001

    3×0.1+4×0.01+6×0.001

    step 3

    hence the number representation is

    3 ×0.1 +4×0.01 +6×0.001=

    0.346

           

        toothpick represent         the number represented in decimal

      1.0.001                                 3.46

      2.0.1                                      34.6
