Jul 6, 2018

$5.3 = \textcolor{b l u e}{5} \times 1 + \textcolor{b l u e}{3} \times \frac{1}{10}$

#### Explanation:

Expanded notation is like reducing or deducing a number expansively in the Hundreds Tens and Units format to match the given value.

For example;

Expanded notation of $4025$

$4025 = \textcolor{red}{4} \times 1000 + \textcolor{red}{0} \times 100 + \textcolor{red}{2} \times 10 + \textcolor{red}{5} \times 1$

Note

$4025 \to \text{Standard Notation}$

$4 \times 1000 + 0 \times 100 + 2 \times 10 + 5 \times 1 \to \text{Expanded Notation}$

Now;

$5.3 = \textcolor{b l u e}{5} \times 1 + \textcolor{b l u e}{3} \times \frac{1}{10}$
