    to start things off, you have to move the decimal point in 9.4 to make the number a whole number. So you have to move the decimal point 1 spot to the right |dw:1440994697264:dw|

    you have to do the same movement to the other decimal point as well (to keep things balanced) |dw:1440994725524:dw|

    think of 65.8 as 658 you'll temporarily ignore the decimal point and reintroduce it later
