The Basics: : 

The Basics: When you multiply by 10, 100, or 1,000, you can move the decimal point to the right. The number of decimal places you move is the same as the number of zeroes you are multiplying by. When you divide by 10, 100, or 1,000, you can move the decimal point to the left. Move the decimal point once for each zero you are dividing by.
