  1. Thank you SO much! I’m in sixth grade and is studying chemistry, physics, calculus, etc. I can name tons of unheard of polygons in geometry, and all of that, but we have been learning decimals and I didn’t understand at all. Heck, I can’t even long divide for some reason. This was the only thing that made me understand, and now I can do good on my test tomorrow. 😀

  2. I knew this in 5th grade but then now in 6th grade I forgot and am watching this video to refresh this topic!!😀😀
