Example 1 
6.123 
Multiply 6123 by 5 to get 30615. There are three decimal places in 6.123, so place the decimal three digits from the right:
6.123 × 5 = 30.615
Example 2 

We can multiply 567 by 6123 to get 3471741. Then there are 5 decimal places: two in the number 5.67 and three in the number 6.123, so place the decimal five digits from the right:
5.67 × 6.123 = 34.71741
Rounding Decimals
To round a number to the nearest tenth (one place to the right of the decimal point), look to the hundredths place (two places after the decimal).
If the number in the hundredths place is 5 or more, add "one" to the number in the tenths place and drop the number in the hundredths place.
If the number in the hundredths place is under 5, leave the number in the tenths place as is and drop the number in the hundredths place.
