**In this module, you can ****study how to multiply two decimal numbers together.**

** **

When you multiply two decimal numbers the answer could be smaller than either of the two starting numbers.

For example, 0.2 x 0.3 = 0.06

(0.06 is smaller than both 0.2 and 0.3)

Multiplying decimals can easily be done on a calculator.

When you multiply two decimal numbers on paper, you **don't** need to line up the decimal points.
