Decimal is a number that describes the base-10 number system, probably the most commonly used number system. The decimal number system consists of ten single-digit numbers- 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. The number after 9 is 10. The number after 19 is 20 and so on. Additional power of 10 requires the addition of another positional digit.
In algebra, a decimal number can be defined as a number whose whole number part and the fractional part is separated by a decimal point. The dot in the decimal number is called the decimal point. The digit following the decimal point shows a value smaller than one.
