Upper Level SSAT SAMPLE QUESTION: Decimals

Here’s a SSAT sample question to help you practice the type of decimal question you may find on the quantitative section of the Upper Level SSAT.

What Are Decimals?

A decimal point, which is placed after a whole number, separates the whole-number part
from the fractional part of a number. Digits can be placed to the left of the decimal point to indicate values greater than one or to the right of the decimal point to indicate values less than one. Example: thirty-five and six-tenths written as a decimal number is 35.6 35.6 has 3 tens, 5 ones and 6 tenths. 35.6 = 30 + 5 +6/10
