**Introduction to Decimals and Whole Numbers**

Before learning the methods of multiplying decimals by whole numbers, it is important to thoroughly understand some related terms, such as whole numbers, decimal numbers, and obviously, **multiplication**. As you all learned multiplication at the kindergarten level, I will skip the simple multiplication methods here.

**Whole Numbers**

Whole numbers are all positive natural numbers, including the number zero, which has an infinite range. Fractions and decimals are not included in whole numbers.

So, look at the image given below. What are you seeing here at the top portion of the image, Champs? A number line. Right? A number line starts from zero to infinity.

And that’s what we can call whole numbers. Some examples of the whole number: 0, 12, 28, 35, 889, 1500, etc.

**Decimal Numbers**

And now the decimal number. A decimal number is any numerical value that contains a decimal point. It can also be stated in fractional form in some cases.

By dividing a whole into smaller parts, we get decimals. Then, there are two parts to a decimal number: a whole number part and a fractional part.

As a whole number, the whole component of a decimal number has the same decimal place value system. After the decimal point, however, when we proceed to the right, we obtain the fractional portion of the decimal number.

Look at the lower portion of the above image where I explain 5.47, a decimal number, for your clear understanding.
