**Reading and Writing Decimal Numbers**

When reading decimal numbers, read the whole number part as normal, use "and" to represent the decimal point, and continue reading the number as normal, but end with the last place value. If there are no whole numbers in front of the decimal value, you do not use the word "and". Rather, you read the number as normal and end with the last place value of the number.
