Multiplication of Numbers With Decimals

Multiplication of numbers with decimals follows similar procedures as outlined above. The braille reader must include the decimal point (dots 4-6) in the problem wherever it occurs. In performing the operation, the student ignores the existence of the decimal points and carries out the operation as outlined above. When the final answer has been derived, the position of the decimal point is determined by counting the number of digits which follow the decimal, in both the multiplicand and multiplier. That number of places is "counted over" from the right. The decimal point is then placed in the proper position in the answer.
