There are many types of numbers: whole numbers, rational numbers, natural numbers, integers, decimals, etc. In this Chapter 7 of the RS Aggarwal class 6 textbook, we will learn about decimal numbers, what are their types and properties.
According to the textbook, a decimal is a number with a whole part and a fraction part, separated by a decimal point. For example, 7.35 is a decimal number. Here 7 is the whole number part, and 35 is the decimal part. In the first few chapter exercises, we will learn about the place value system applicable in decimal numbers and write decimal numbers in words.
The Decimal numbers also have various types, such as Recurring Decimal Numbers and Non-Recurring Decimal Numbers. All the concepts regarding various types of Decimal Numbers are covered in this chapter of RS Aggarwal, along with different properties of Decimal Numbers. The problems based on the properties of the decimal numbers help in a better understanding of the concepts and build a clearer foundation of the same.
The exercises in the chapter deal with concepts of decimal conversion to fractions and vice versa. These require the knowledge of fractions from the previous chapter and of decimals from the current chapter. Solving these problems based on basic mathematical operations step-by-step clears the students’ concepts and makes them ready.
If students face any difficulty solving the problems, the Aakash institute has provided the entire chapter's solution, which has a step-by-step approach and is easily understandable. The solutions provided may help students solve doubts and confusion to find silly mistakes and avoid them in the future.
