# Writing a Decimal Number Greater Than 1 Given its Name

Here we are considering decimal numbers greater than 1 or decimal numbers that have both whole number part and decimal part. For example: Five and eight tenths; Sixty-three and fifteen hundredths; Three hundred one and two hundred eighteen thousandths and so on.

**Rules to write the decimal numbers greater than 1 in numeral form.**

- We write the number before 'and' as a numeral followed by decimal point.
- We write the number after 'and' as a whole number after decimal point
- We see to it that the last digit of this whole number has same place value as given by the decimal unit mentioned.

**Example:**

Write the decimal ninety-one and fifty-four thousandths.

**Solution**

- We write ninety-one & 'and' as "91."
- We write fifty-four thousandths as "0.054." so that 4 is in thousandths place.
- So we write ninety-one and fifty-four thousandths as "91.054"
