# Decimals

Context in math and the real world is an important component for understanding answers
and the best format for answers. If someone asked you to write a paragraph, you wouldn’t
create a bullet point outline. In math, the context has to do with what the answer means in
the real world. For example, if someone is creating a budget, a fraction would not be the
best format for a number because money is measured using decimals. You would not see
\$5 ½; you would see \$5.50. Decimals play an important role as they are used in financial
calculations, exact answers, approximations, and estimation, and they play a vital role in
rounding. The key to understanding when to use a decimal is to examine the context of the
problem.
