    Decimal place

    Do Brach

      How do you guys/gals read this?     0.015


      I read as 15/100 (fifteen hundredths) --I'm right! and my co-workers read it as 15/1000 (fifteen thousandths); which I think is wrong.  My reason is 15 can be written as 15.0, 15 or 15.

      If you moved the decimal to the left (one,ten, hundred, thousand...etc) you'll get 0.0015 which is 15/1000---you get one extra zero on the left!
