# Equivalent Decimal Numbers

## Equivalent Decimal Numbers

Decimal numbers that represent the same rational number.

Theoretically, there are an infinite number of ways to write the same decimal number. Each of these ways corresponds to a decimal fraction that is equivalent to the initial decimal number.

### Examples

• 235.78 = 235.780 = 235.7800 = …
• Because $$\dfrac{6}{10} = \dfrac{60}{100} = \dfrac{600}{1000} = …$$, this means that $$0.6 = 0.60 = 0.600$$
