How do you write in words 4.110 and 4.10?

The

ohaa [14]

"Four and 11 hundredths" or "four and one hundred ten thousandths"; and

"Four and ten hundredths" or "four and one tenth."

Explanation:

In the first decimal, the digit 4 is in front of the decimal. This is read "Four and". After the decimal, we have 110. We look at the last place, digit, 0. Going by our place value, this is in the thousandths place. We read the block of digits 110 as "one hundred ten" and it is "thousandths." This makes the number "four and one hundred ten thousandths."

Alternatively, if we drop the zero, we would have 4.11. It is still "four and"; this time the last digit is 1, and it is in the hundredths place. 11 is read as "eleven", so this would be "four and eleven hundredths."

For the second number, 4.10, we have a 4 in front of the decimal, so we again have "four and". Our last digit is 0, and it is in the hundredths place; 10 is read "ten", so we have "four and ten hundredths."

Alternatively, if we drop the zero, we have 4.1. This is still "four and"; the 1 is now our last digit, and it is in the tenths place, so we have "four and one tenth."

Answer: The volume will be raised to the 3rd power of whatever the length is scaled by.

When we are scaling a figure, it means we are multiplying the length of it by a scale factor.

Picture a rectangle that is 5 by 7, the area would be 35.

If we scale it by 3, it is now 15 by 21 and the area would be 315.

The length got 3 times larger, but the area got 3^2 times larger because it is in 2 dimensions.

If we were talking about a rectangular prism, the volume would be 3^3 times larger or 27 times larger!

## CHARITIES AND FUNDRAISING

Charity fundraising is something that people raise concerns with the ACNC about. Concerns are often about the tactics used by fundraisers and marketers working for charities. We also get questions about how much money charities can spend on fundraising and other activities.

These questions provide answers to the most common questions and concerns we hear at the ACNC about charity fundraising.

The ACNC is not a national fundraising regulator (there are many agencies that regulate fundraising), but we can take action in certain situations.

### How can charities raise funds?

If a charity complies with relevant fundraising or other regulatory requirements, it can raise funds in any way it chooses.

Charities raise funds in a variety of ways, including:

fundraising

fee-for-service work

membership fees

grants from grant-making bodies and funders (such as government agencies or philanthropic trusts and foundations)

running opportunity shops or selling items (such as merchandise or having a bake sale).

Although what constitutes fundraising may differ from state to state, it generally includes:

soliciting public donations (such as door-knock appeals or street collections)

holding public events with admission fees

holding fundraising events (sometimes in partnership with others, such as a fun run or gala dinner)

raffles or other games (such as bingo).

In an ever-changing environment, charities – like all enterprises – may need to look at generating multiple streams of income to ensure their sustainability. Newer approaches to raise funds, can include social investment (social or environmental impact) or social impact bonds, community funding (crowdsourcing) and micro-financing, and campaigns through social media and digital tools.

Charities need to ensure they retain their not-for-profit status and that their fundraising goes towards furthering their charitable purpose, particularly if there is a commercial element involved.

Charities must comply with any relevant fundraising laws in the state or territory they raise funds in, not just where they operate.

### Can charities spend money on a fundraising activity?

Yes. It is legitimate for a charity to spend money to raise money (that is, incurring expenses while undertaking fundraising activities), as long as this is in line with its charitable purpose. Decisions about how a charity will raise and use funds are made by the charity’s governing body.

### Why do charities use commercial fundraising firms?

Sometimes charities outsource fundraising to external agencies, or they may rely on volunteer fundraisers. Because of the resources involved in large-scale fundraising, it may be appropriate and cost-effective for a charity to outsource this work, especially for larger charities.

However, there have been examples of commercial fundraisers using questionable tactics to get donors to commit to regular ongoing donations, which can seriously affect public goodwill and the charity’s reputation.

### Who is responsible for a charity’s fundraising?

Ultimately, a charity’s board, committee of management or trustees (its ‘governing body’) has responsibility for fundraising activity, whether it is outsourced or not. The board has the overall responsibility for the charity’s actions. Board members must have a clear understanding of how money is raised, including any fundraising operations, and they must ensure there are appropriate and lawful processes in place to manage any money raised.

They must ensure that the charity generates funds in a way that is in the charity’s best interests. This includes considering the charity’s charitable purpose, its beneficiaries and the impact on the public and other potential donors. For example, information collected from donors must be appropriately stored and used in ways that comply with relevant privacy laws. Some boards choose to adopt fundraising policies, or codes of conduct, like those developed by the Fundraising Institute of Australia.

No matter how charity funds are raised, the board must ensure that the money, less reasonable expenses, is put towards pursuing the charity’s charitable purpose. Read more about the duties of board members.

### Statements about charity fundraising and what donations are used for

Charities should ensure they are not misleading the public in relation to their administration costs and fundraising.

This includes statements regarding the use or destination of contributions as well as the need for donations.

For example, a charity should not solicit donations with a statement that ‘100% of contributions will benefit those in need’ if, in fact, a portion of donations will go towards the administrative costs of the charity.

Charities should also not be misleading when referring to studies or statistics to support the need for donations. For example, a charity should ensure there is a reasonable basis for any statistics quoted or research referred to for the purposes of soliciting donations.

Charities should also be transparent in relation to their fundraising arrangements, particularly where this impacts where contributions end up.
