Middle Level SSAT SAMPLE QUESTIONS: Decimals
Here’s a SSAT sample question to help you practice the type of decimal problem you may find on the quantitative section of the Middle 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
SSAT Sample Question for Decimal:
