**There's a bit of a silly trick to multiplying decimals.? It's not really a trick -- it's just how it works -- but, it's so weird that it may seem like a trick.**

**It's going to sound confusing at first.? Just read through it, then look at the examples, then read it again.? It'll be really easy!**

**Here's the deal:**

1) | Ignore the decimal points and multiply as usual... |

2) | Count how many total digits are on the right side of the decimal points in the guys you are multiplying... |

3) | Place the decimal point in your answer so there are this many digits to the right. |

**Let's just do one!**

**Multiply...? Count the spots behind the decimals...? Put the decimal point in your answer:**

**Does our answer make sense?? Do a little rounding and think about it... 2.8 is a little less than 3... ?3 x 7 = 21...? So, our answer should be a little less than 21.? Yep, our answer looks good!**

**And remember, you can always grab a calculator to check your answers on these!**
