  1. are there any tricks or things that can help you do multiplication with decimals by 10, 100, 1,000,10,000, and more. I am confused by the way it works.

    1. If you multiply by 10, then you move the decimal in the original number ONCE to the RIGHT (3.4 x 10 = 34). If you multiply by 100, then you move the decimal in the original number TWICE to the RIGHT (3.4 x 100 = 340). If you multiply by 1000, then you move the decimal in the original number THREE TIMES to the RIGHT (3.4 x 1000 = 3400).
