The world is changing and we are living in exciting times. But I can tell stories to make you feel sad, made you laugh, made you cry. Whatever it is, it's work that I'm proud of every day. I can write hard. I can write comic books. I can write sitcoms. And I’m finding that as life goes on, and as the landscape changes in front of me, there's a new way that I can write that's so important.

### Number Second, start moving the decimal point in the coefficient to the right or left. For each place you move the decimal place to the left, add 1 to the exponent. For each place you move it to the right, subtract 1 from the exponent. What you are doing is dividing (or multiplying) the coefficient by 10 each time, while at the same time multiplying (or dividing) the exponent term by 10 each time. Since what you do to the exponent term undoes what you do to the coefficient, the total number does not change.

### Mean $\begingroup$ Suppose you have 10 cookies and you want each kid to get 3 cookies. $10\div 3 = 3\frac13$. This means you have enough cookies for 3 kids, and only $\frac13$ of a full share for kid #4. Now suppose you have 1 cookie and you want each kid to get 2 cookies. $1\div 2 = \frac12$. This means you have enough cookies for 0 kids, and only $\frac12$ of a full share for kid #1. $\endgroup$ .I am not asking the mathematical justification that $1/0.5=10/5=2$. I know all this. I just want to know how it is two... a lay man justification. According to my understanding if one says $1/2$ then it means we are dividing something of value $1$ into two parts, so the result is $0.5$ which means each of the two parts has value $0.5$. But if one does $1/0.5$, what does it mean and how it is equal to $2$?
