Use of decimal fractions

Sir : Now we will see how 24.50 equals 24 rupees and 50 paise. How many rupees is one paisa?

Sumit : 100 paise make one rupee, therefore, 1 paisa is one-hundredth of a rupee or 0.01 rupee.

Sir : And 50 paise are?

Sumit : 50 hundredths of a rupee, or 0.50 rupees, so 24.50 rupees is 24 rupees and 50 paise.

Sir : When a large unit of a certain quantity is divided into 10 or 100 parts to make smaller units, it is more convenient to write them in decimal form. As we just saw, 100 paise = 1 rupee. Similarly, 100 cm = 1 metre, so 75 cm = 0.75 m. 10 mm = 1 cm, so 1 mm = 0.1cm. 3 mm are 0.3 cm. 6.3 cm are 6 cm and 3 mm.

Now study the following table.
