I wrote this on my paper to help me visualize:

0._ _ _

1) the tenths digit of 100z is 2.

So if you multiply the 0._ _ _ by 100 you are moving the decimal place over by 2 so you get _ _._ . This tells you that the units digit in 0._ _ _ is 2. But not enought by itself.

2) The units digit of 1,000z is 2

Multiply 0._ _ _ by 1,000 and you get _ _ _.0 This tells us that the units digit is 2, which means that the hundredths digit in 0._ _ _ is 2. This is enough.

Let me know if I missed something.

Let z = 0.abcde

ST1 100z = ab.cde and it is given that tenths digit is 2 i.e. c=2
NOT SUFF

ST2 1000z = abc.de and it is given that units digit is 2 i.e. c=2
NOT SUFF
