1: 1: 0.4 2:1.3 3: 2.8
2: a: 2 ones and 1 tenth. b: 1 one and 2 tenths. c: 0 ones and 2 tenths. d: 2 ones and 0 tenths.
3: a: 0.8 b: 8.0 c: 3.5 d 5.3.
4: a: 1.3 b: 1 one and 3 tenths. c: There was no specific amount of counters so I knew that all I had to do was just put one whole and three tenths and if you put them together, you get 1.3. (The number tommy made)
5: a: There are 2 ones and 6 tenths. 2 ones plus 6 tenths equals 2 plus 0.6 Equals 2.6. b: There are 0 ones and 9 tenths. 0 ones plus 9 tenths equals 0 plus 0.9 equals 0.9.
6: a: 3 ones and 2 tenths. b: 5 ones and 2 tenths.
7: one tenth-0 ones and 1 tenth. Twenty one tenths-2 ones and 1 tenth. Twelve tenths-1 one and 2 tenths. Ten tenths-1 one and 0 tenths.
8: 1 plus 9. 2 plus 8. 3 plus 7. 4 plus 6. 5 plus 5. 6 plus 4. 7 plus 3. 8 plus 2. 9 plus 1.
