This amount is found by dividing 13 mills by 1000 mills/\$1.00. Can 13 mills be expressed as a decimal part of another amount instead of \$1.00? For example, express 13 mills as a decimal part of \$1.50 or express 13 mills as a decimal part of \$0.10. What would these amounts be?Answered by Robert Dawson.     Express 13 mills as a decimal part of \$1.00. 2009-03-13 From Kenneth:Hello: I read the following in an old business mathematics textbook: "Express 13 mills as a decimal part of \$1.00." I can determine the answer as follows: There are 1000 mills in or per \$1.00. 13 mills divided by 1000 mills/\$1.00 equals \$0.013, the answer. My question is as follows: What does "...as a decimal part of \$1.00" indicate or represent from "Express 13 mills as a decimal part of \$1.00."? Is (a decimal part of \$1.00) any decimal less than \$1.00 with the decimal having a dollar sign before it. I thank you for your reply.Answered by Harley Weston.
