If you're good at reading and saying regular whole numbers, this will be a snap for you!

Here's a little review:

523

"five hundred twenty-three"
(Notice that I didn't say "and twenty-three!")

73,481

"seventy-three thousand four hundred eighty-one"
(Again, I didn't say "and" anywhere.)

We're saving the big "and" for the decimal point!

Check this out:

5.2 -- five and two tenths


43.6 -- forty-three and six tenths
