Adding zeros after the decimals is the only way to do it. It would be 0.680 and 0.6800 or 0.68000 and 0.680000. It's seems pointless, but the reason we have kids do it is to teach them the zeros added at the end of a decimal have no value.
momotrips, good thought, but you can't convert decimals like that. .34 is thirty-four hundredths, it's a part out of 100 it's not equal to 0.68 (sixty-eight hundredths). I can see where you were coming from though!
