#2**+10 **

Best Answer

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)
