How do You Multiply Decimals?

You multiply decimals just like you would multiply whole numbers. However, after you have the answer, you would start at the last digit of the answer and move to the right the number of places as the sum of the decimal places of original two decimals. For example, to multiply .25 x .25, you multiply 25 by 25 to get 625. Since there are two decimal place in each of the original decimals, you move 4 decimals places starting at 5 to get 0.0625 as the final answer.
