We use dot (.) to separate rupees and paise. The figure on the left of the dot represents rupees. The figure on the right of the dot represents paise. The number of paise is written as a 2-digit number.
(i) If we have to represent the amount of money consists of the only paise place zero before the dot (.) to indicate that there are no rupees. For example, 35 paise is written in figures as Re 0.35 or 35 p.
(ii) If the paise has one digit, we put zero before it to make a two-digit number. For example, 5 paise in the figure is written as Re 0.05 or 5 p.
We know that:

100 paise = Re 1

Two 50 paise = Re 1

Four 25 paise = Re 1
