# Counting in hundredths

## In a nutshell

A hundredth represents the value of the digit to the right hand side of the tenths column. A hundredth also represents one part of a whole split into one hundred equal parts. One hundredth can be written as a fraction in the form of $\dfrac{1}{100}$.

##### Example 1

*Measurements can be split into $100$ equal pieces called hundredths. A metre is split into $100$ equal parts called centimetres.*

*One centimetre is one hundredth, or $\dfrac{1}{100}$of a metre.*

## Counting in hundredths

You can count up in hundredths by increasing the number on the top of the fraction. The number on the bottom of the fraction should always be $100$.

##### Example 2

*Count on in hundredths.*

*$\dfrac{35}{100},$ $\dfrac{36}{100},$ $\dfrac{37}{100},$ $\dfrac{38}{100},$ $\dfrac{39}{100}$*

**Tip:**** ***If you are asked to count down in hundredths, you will need to decrease the number on the top of the fraction instead.*
