When we split a whole into ten equal parts, each part is called a tenth.

**For example,**

Here, a chocolate bar is split into ten equal parts. Each part is one out of ten equal parts. Hence, each part is called ‘one tenth’.

**Tenth as Fraction**

Here, a bar is split into 10 equal parts.

Out of 10, 1 part is shaded.

Fraction of the shaded part =

So, ‘one tenth’ as a fraction is ‘’

Out of 10, 4 parts are shaded.

Fraction of the shaded part =

**Tenth as decimal**

One-tenth is the same as

The fraction bar between numerator and denominator is the same as the division bar.

is same is 1 ÷ 10 which is 0.1

So, ‘one tenth’ is 0.1.

Also, the first digit to the right of the decimal point represents tenths.

**Example:**

The shaded part

As a fraction =

As a decimal = 0.3

In words = Three tenths
