**? Building on the Essential Question** How can I show how numbers are related to each other?

Answer:

You can show the relation of both numbers by simply identifying the place value of each digit.

For example, the number is 555.55

First 5 in the left has the value of a hundred, followed by tens and ones.

Then the number next to the decimal point has a value of tenths and the next is hundredths.

Now, how the find the relationship of the given number

Each number has 10 times difference with each other.

0.05 x 10 = 0.5

0.5 x 10 = 5

5 x 10 = 50

50 x 10 = 500
