# 5. Multiply Decimals

Multiply two decimal numbers (up to hundredths place). Multiplication of decimals numbers can be treated just by multiplying two multi-digit numbers (ignoring the decimal point) and then placing the decimal point in the product. The key concept that students need to master is the placement of the decimal point.
