14.3 Decimals [VII.28.f, g]

In braille the decimal point is represented by dots 4-6, not the period. The number sign is always placed before the decimal point. Like fractions, when a decimal fraction is joined to another number by a hyphen or a dash, a second number sign is required. Examples:

.7 .03 .5 - .7

Note: For reference numbers containing decimals see 17.4.
