Question 21.

**Building on the Essential Question** How is multiplying decimals different from multiplying whole numbers?

Answer:

The only difference between multiplying whole numbers and multiplying decimals is that we have the added step of moving the decimal point after performing the multiplication when multiplying decimals.

Explanation:

For example:

48 x 3 = 144

When we multiply the whole number with the other whole number,

the product is also whole number.

4.8 x 3 = 14.4

multiplying decimals is that we have the added step of moving the decimal point after performing the multiplication when multiplying decimals.
