[⟨det (nn decimal.n point.n)⟩ have.v ⟨the-local right.n⟩]

In the British National Corpus:

Now if we go to the right of the decimal point, are these bigger things or smaller.

In Simple Wikipedia:

A terminating decimal is a decimal with a certain number of digits to the right of the decimal point.

In Wikipedia:

The other, newer method is to put the number of full bathrooms to the left side of the decimal point and to put the number of half bathrooms to the right of the decimal point (e. g., “2.1” would mean 2 full baths and 1 half bath; “3.2” would mean 3 full baths and 2 half baths).
(Parse)

In Simple Wikipedia:

The digits do not repeat, and will never repeat, no matter how far you go to the right of the decimal point.
(Parse)

In Wikipedia:

To the right of the decimal point, this will have n1 0s, followed by n2 1s, then n3 0s and so on. where the term on the right is a continued fraction.
(Parse)

In the ICWSM 2009 Weblog Corpus:

A fractional part that specifies either the maximum number of characters to be printed (for a string), or the number of digits to be printed to the right of the decimal point (for floating – point formats).
(Parse)

In Wikipedia:

For example, consider the real numbers To “truncate” these numbers to 4 decimal digits, we only consider the 4 digits to the right of the decimal point.
(Parse)

In the ICWSM 2009 Weblog Corpus:

the decimal number above consists of only 1’s and 0’s to the right of the decimal point.
(Parse)

In the ICWSM 2009 Weblog Corpus:

For example, the format code’ ’ % 2d’ ’ tells Awk to print a two – digit integer number, and the format code’ ’ % 7.2f’ ’ tells Awk to print a seven – digit floating – point number, with two digits to the right of the decimal point.
(Parse)

In Wikipedia:

The idea behind p – adic numbers is this: While real numbers may have infinitely long expansions to the right of the decimal point, these numbers allow for infinitely long expansions to the left.
(Parse)

In the ICWSM 2009 Weblog Corpus:

The fractional part of the number specifies either, for a string, the maximum number of characters to be printed; or, for floating – point formats, the number of digits to be printed to the right of the decimal point.
(Parse)

In Wikipedia:

They may in theory be expressed by decimal representations that have an infinite sequence of digits to the right of the decimal point; these are often represented in the same form as 324.823122147 The ellipsis (three dots) indicate that there would still be more digits to come.
(Parse)

In the ICWSM 2009 Weblog Corpus:

The time component is everything to the right of the decimal point (the fractional part).
(Parse)

In Wikipedia:

In this case, it would be 37.5 (20 + 14 + 3.5) divided by 12.5 (3.5 + 9 + 0), giving Secretariat a Dosage Index of exactly 3.00 (the figure almost always being expressed with two places to the right of the decimal point and rounded to the nearest.01).
(Parse)

In Wikipedia:

If we have a negative exponent, that means the number is multiplied by a 1 that many places to the right of the decimal point.
(Parse)

In the British National Corpus:

Again, success rates for a basic task concerning the meaning of decimals, in this case the place value of a digit in a particular column to the right of the decimal point, were low.
(Parse)

In Wikipedia:

Each digit to the right of the decimal point has a place value one – tenth of the place value of the digit to its left.
(Parse)

In Wikipedia:

As there are no negative powers of 5 in this expansion of 1 / 3 (i. e. no numbers to the right of the decimal point), we see that 1 / 3 is a “p” – adic integer in base 5.
(Parse)

In Simple Wikipedia:

A repeating decimal is a decimal where there are infinitely many digits to the right of the decimal point, but they follow a repeating pattern.
