# Cheri's time in the bobsled race was 1min. ,38.29 . Write the word form and the value of the 9 in Cheri's time.

I can't understand please explain this problem

Level 4 (31 Credits)
• The 9 is nine HUNDREDTHS - one minute, thirty-eight and twenty nine hundredths. On the left side of the decimal the place value begins at ones, then goes to tens, hundreds, etc. But on the right side of the decimal the place value begins at TENTHS then hundredths, thousandths, etc. It is basically the number form of a fraction (29/100 of a second).

• Its 9 hundreds...look at the chart I sent you in your last post....You might want to read over your book again to get a better understanding.

• I thnk, and don't quote me (i'm horrible at math) that it's asking you to write out the vaue so it would be

one minute and thirty eight and twenty-nine hundreths of a second. 9's value is hundreth.

Here's the chart I use to use back when we were decimal places, hope it helps
