# Fractions As Division By Power Of 10 | Place Value And Decimals | 5th Grade | Khan Academy

Theres clearly a comma in the last 2 fractions. 1,098 is NOT EQUAL to 1098. Even if you live in a country that uses dots as separators (I don’t), theres no need to put anything in that number, its misleading and useless…

I cant thank you enough for this and all these video,s. Im studying music and didnt do my maths gcse,s at school so i was terrified of maths but ive really surprised myself that i can learn this. In school id get left behind because i keep daydreaming and i find it hard concentrating for long but videos are great because i can just watch it again. Thank you so much.
