As far as I know above is incorrect.
two hundred ans eightythree thousandth = 283/1000 = 0.283
I do not know how to write 17.39625 It is the numbers right after the decimal that confuse me.
Thank you.

5 decimal places is hundred thousandths ... so it would be twohundred eightythree hundred thousandths
I do not know how to write 17.39625
seventeen and thirtynine thousand six hundred twentyfive hundred thousandths
It is the numbers right after the decimal that confuse me.
in general ... 1 decimal, tenths 2 decimals, hundredths 3 decimals, thousandths 4 decimals, ten thousandths 5 decimals, hundred thousandths 6 decimals, millionths and so on
Thank you.
