**Place value** is used to read and write multi-digit decimal numbers.

The number before the decimal point has a 2 in the hundreds place, a 9 in the tens place, and a 1 in the ones place.

This is written as two hundred ninety-one.

The decimal point is written as "and."

The number after the decimal point has a 4 in the tenths place, a 1 in the hundredths place, and a 3 in the thousandths place.

Since the last digit is in the thousandths place, this is written as

four hundred thirteen thousandths.

So, the number written in words is two hundred ninety-one and

four hundred thirteen thousandths.

Ninety-six is written 96.

Four hundred one is written 401.

Four hundred one thousandths is written so that the last digit is in the thousandths place, 0.401.

So, ninety-six and four hundred one thousandths written as a number is 96.401.
