# Im not understanding how decimals works

I just know the answer, but idk how it gets there. help. i’m new.

We will need much more information to be able to help you. What problem are you working on? What code do you have so far? Is there a link to what you are working on?

i’m doing the basics of java and learning how to calculate the decimal.

``````
var ourDecimal = 5.7;

// Only change the code below this line

var myDecimal = 0.0009
``````

If I am understanding you correctly, you are working on the JavaScript challenge here: https://www.freecodecamp.org/learn/javascript-algorithms-and-data-structures/basic-javascript/create-decimal-numbers-with-javascript

It looks like your code solves the challenge, so I don’t understand what your question is.

Yes, you’re right! And i know the answer is already there, but i dont know why it is 0.0009, like, why? 5.7 is 35, it doesn’t make sense to be a question about decimal numbers.

I don’t understand what this means. 5.7 is a decimal number. The dot between the 5 and the 7 is the decimal point.
