• A.

Dots

• B.

Places

• C.

Number

• D.

Letters

C. Number
Explanation
The correct answer is "Number" because the decimal system is used to represent both integer and non-integer numbers. In this system, numbers are represented using the digits 0-9 and the decimal point. The digits to the left of the decimal point represent the integer part of the number, while the digits to the right represent the fractional part. Therefore, the decimal system is the standard system for denoting numbers, both whole and decimal.

• A.

Decimal notation

• B.

Ratio

• C.

Float number

• D.

Decimal places

A. Decimal notation
Explanation
The way of denoting numbers in the decimal system is referred to as decimal notation. This system uses the digits 0-9 and a decimal point to represent numbers, with each digit's position indicating its value relative to the decimal point. It is the most commonly used number system in everyday life and is used for calculations involving fractions and decimals.

### Decimal and place value is the extension of non-integer numbers of?

• A.

Asia numeral system

• B.

Hindu-Arabic numeral system

• C.

Decimal and place value is the extension of non-integer numbers of the Hindu-Arabic numeral system. The Hindu-Arabic numeral system, also known as the decimal numeral system, is a positional numeral system that uses a base of ten. It is the most widely used numeral system in the world today and is used by most cultures for everyday arithmetic. The system allows for the representation of non-integer numbers by using decimal points and place values. Therefore, the Hindu-Arabic numeral system is the correct answer for this question.

• A.

Notation

• B.

Position

• C.

Numbers

Rate this question:

• 6.

### The number that may be represented in the decimal system is?

• A.

Approximation

• B.

Notation

• C.

Ratio

• D.

Decimal Fraction

D. Decimal Fraction
Explanation
A decimal fraction is a number that can be represented in the decimal system, which is the most commonly used number system. In the decimal system, numbers are represented using a combination of digits (0-9) and a decimal point to indicate the position of the fractional part. This allows for the representation of both whole numbers and fractions in a clear and concise manner. Therefore, a decimal fraction is the correct answer as it is the only option that can be represented in the decimal system.

### The decimal system has been extended to infinite decimals, for representing any?

• A.

Infinity

• B.

Rational number

• C.

Irrational number

• D.

Real number

D. Real number
Explanation
The decimal system has been extended to infinite decimals in order to represent any real number. Real numbers include both rational numbers (which can be expressed as a fraction) and irrational numbers (which cannot be expressed as a fraction and have non-repeating decimal representations). Therefore, the decimal system allows for the representation of all types of real numbers, making "Real number" the correct answer.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### For writing numbers, the decimal system uses ten?

• A.

Decimal digits

• B.

Decimal Mark

• C.

Negative numbers

• D.

All of the above

D. All of the above
Explanation
The statement "For writing numbers, the decimal system uses ten" is true. In the decimal system, numbers are represented using ten digits (0-9). Additionally, the decimal mark (usually a period or a comma) is used to separate the whole number part from the fractional part in decimal numbers. Lastly, the decimal system also allows for the representation of negative numbers, using a negative sign (-) before the number. Therefore, all of the given options are correct explanations for the statement.

• A.

Hundredths

• B.

Symbol

• C.

Letter

Explanation
Positional notation is a method of representing or encoding numbers. It involves using different symbols or digits to represent different values depending on their position in the number. In this case, the hundredths position refers to the third digit after the decimal point in a number. Therefore, the correct answer is "Number" because positional notation is used to represent numbers.

Rate this question:

• 10.
