A tenth is 0.1, so divide 89.5 by 0.1.

 89.5/0.1  multiply top and bottom by 10 to get 895/1 or just 895.

Thanks Alan,

I would look at it a little differently.

How many units are there in 75.    75 ofcourse.  75*1=75

How many hundreds are there in 1600   Well 16 of course  16*100=1600

How many thousands are there in 137000  .   Ans 137    :   137*1000=137000

How many tenths in 5.7  57 because 57*1/10=5.7  (note that the 7 is in the tenths column)
