I'm not sure what has gone wrong, but I have sent you (Mandy) an email. (As asked by you and Bob)

I have checked the email address and it is correct.

Hi, I have sent another email - just a short one this time with the title "Test Email".

Quite frankly if you haven't got that one then something strange has happened.

I have now sent you 3 emails.

I have read your last post, but I still don't know why these emails are not getting through.

I have thought that it might be a problem with our ISP. I could try sending an email to Bob

to see if he gets that.

Hi bob bundy mandy here have you sorted it out yet or not?

My email to Bob has got through and he has replied and that has got through.

Your email that you have just sent has not got through.

So I think we will have to discuss things on this website instead.

There are several sub topics that occur to me to do with decimals such as:

(1) Rounding (eg. round 3.54, 2.78 and 3.17 to 1 decimal place)

(2) Putting numbers in the right order (eg. 3.06, 3.60, 3.006, 3.0606)

(3) Arithmetic using decimals (add, subtract, multply, divide)

(4) Understanding things like that 0.01 is ten times as big as 0.001 and other things to do with place value.

I have now received two short emails from you. I have sent two short replies confirming that I have got them.

However I get the impression that you are not getting the emails that I have sent you. Have you got any of

the emails that I have sent you? Do you think that I can best help you on this website or by email?

Right now I need to get an idea of how well you understand this already.

Look at the right hand column of the addition. You will see that clearly 6 + 5 = 11 and that the "units" bit of it has been put

into the answer box as "1". Under the addition a "1" has been carried.

In the next column the addition is 2 + 3 (which would usually be 5), but there is one to carry meaning that 6 goes in the answer.

2 + 3 + 1 = 6

OK ?
