well if you break down 9.057 each keep each number in its place. example : 2.01= 2+.01 or 32.505 = 30+2+.5+.005. Each place is after the decimals are as follows, ones, tenths, thousands. so for the first example we would say that is 2 and one hundredths.
for example two we would say that is 32 and five hundred thousands. Does that help?
