Helping students with homework can be easier with examples rather than rules.

**10 times as much as** vs. **1/10 of **can be clarified by using better numbers:

so we chose 6 as our better number

**6** is **10 times as much as 0.6** and **1/10 of 60**

Now we know how to answer each column by comparing it to our easy example of 6!!

#### CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP7 Look for and make use of structure.

**Once we see how 6 worked with 0.6 and 60, we can extend that idea to the harder decimal numbers given.**
