The decimal number system in use today was first recorded in Indian mathematics.Indian mathematicians made early contributions to the study of the concept of zero as a number, negative numbers, arithmetic, and algebra.…

The result is to be expressed to at least one decimal place.This algorithm for APR is required for some but not all forms of consumer debt in the EU.…

This is the code for the plate producer.Next you will see another dash followed by a number, a decimal point, and then another number.This code tells you which of that producer's series the plate belongs to and the number after the decimal point tells you which edition of that series that plate is.…

One peculiar feature of the machine was that it lacked any actual arithmetic circuitry.To perform addition, it required a memory-resident table of decimal addition rules.This saved on the cost of logic circuitry, enabling IBM to make it inexpensive.…

The Syrian bishop Severus Sebokht wrote in the mid-7th century CE about the "nine signs" of the Indians for expressing numbers.However, how, when, and where the first decimal place value system was invented is not so clear.…

Small-scale rectangular raster image maps can have an associated world file for GIS map software that describes the location, scale and rotation of the map.These world files are six-line files with decimal numbers on each line.…

It's all a matter of the higher mathematics.Everything is worked out to half a dozen places of decimals.…Cited from A Minstrel In France, by Harry Lauder

Weight and size make them stable on the 'kip' and easy to spin in the air.Decimal coins are generally considered to be too small and light and they don't fly so well.The design of pennies that date pre 1939 had the sovereign's head on the obverse (front) and the reverse was totally covered in writing making the result very easy and quick to see.…

It also adjusts well to digital time representation using epochs, in that the internal time representation can be used directly for both computation and for user-facing display.Decimal time was used in China throughout most of its history alongside dozenal time.…

In the reforms of Cleisthenes, the naucraries gave place to the demes as the political unit.In accordance with the new decimal system, their number was increased to fifty.Whether they continued (and if so, how long) to supply one ship and two (or ten) horsemen each is not certainly known.…

Before the period of the Sulbasutras was at an end, the Brahmi numerals had definitely begun to appear (c. 300BCE) and the similarity with modern day numerals is clear to see.More importantly even still was the development of the concept of decimal place value.…

If both operands and the desired result are represented in the same fixed-point type, then the quotient of the two integers must be explicitly divided by the common scaling factor.The two most common classes of fixed-point types are decimal and binary.Decimal fixed-point types have a scaling factor that is a power of ten; for binary fixed-point types it is a power of two.…

Dewey was a pioneer in American librarianship and an influential figure in the development of libraries in America in the late 19th and early the 20th century.He is best known for the decimal classification system that many public and school libraries use.But the decimal system was just one of a long list of innovations.…

The last decimal digit is now very close to the third letter.The standard European blue band has been added on the left side, with the European flag motif (12 yellow stars) and the country code I. Another blue band was added, on the right side, bearing a yellow circle with the year of registration.…

A non-decimal currency is a currency which has sub-units that are a non-decimal fraction of the main unit, i.e. the number of sub-units in a main unit is not a power of 10.Today only two countries in the world use non-decimal currencies.…

Every real number has at least one infinite decimal expansion.

Sports are ranked according to total possible scholarships (number of teams x number of scholarships per team).Scholarship numbers for head-count sports are indicated without a decimal point.Numbers for equivalency sports are indicated with a decimal point, with a trailing zero if needed.…

These smaller units allow for more accurate calculations without the use of decimals.In the most in-depth PMT systems, motions observed will be on the level of individual TMUs, like toss (3 TMUs in MiniMOST) and simple pick-up (2 TMUs in MTM-1).…

Most information recorded on the quipus consists of numbers in a decimal system.In the early years of the Spanish conquest of Peru, Spanish officials often relied on the quipus to settle disputes over local tribute payments or goods production.…

He is best known for the decimal classification system that many public and school libraries use.But the decimal system was just one of a long list of innovations.Among these is the idea of the state library as controller of school and public library services within a state.…
