|10000||Tens of Thousands||Digit 5|
|100000||Hundreds of Thousands||Digit 6|
|0.1||Tenths||1st decimal place|
|0.01||Hundredths||2nd decimal place|
|0001||Thousandths||3rd decimal place|
|0.0001||Ten Thousandths||4th decimal place|
|0.00001||Hundred Thousandths||5th decimal place|
|0.000001||Millionths||6th decimal place|
|0.000000001||Billionth||9th decimal place|
Example: 1.2 for 1 unit and 2 tenths
0.005 for 5 thousandths
700 for 7 hundreds
