The second digit which placed after a decimal point is called the hundredth place. The hundredth place is $\frac{1}{100}$.

We can also show decimals using blocks.

**1**. Hundreds block have \(100\) boxes.

**2**. Tens block have \(10\) boxes.

**3**. Ones block have \(1\) box.

**4**. Tenths block have $\frac{1}{10}$ boxes of ones block.

**5**. Hundredths block have $\frac{1}{100}$ boxes of ones block.

In the above image:

\(2\) hundreds box + \(3\) tens box + \(5\) ones box + \(4\) tenths box + \(2\) hundredths box

$200+30+5+\frac{4}{10}+\frac{2}{100}=235.42$

This number can be read as "two hundred thirty-five and forty-two hundredth".

It also can be read as "two hundred thirty-five point four two".

This also can be represented in the place value table.

The third digit which placed after a decimal point is called the thousandth place. The thousandth place is $\frac{1}{1000}$.

$\frac{1}{100}$ means \(1\) part out of \(100\) parts of a whole.
