Reading a Dewey Decimal Call Number
To read the Dewey Decimal call number: 355.51 J27
355.51: The number in front of the decimal is read as a whole number (three hundred and fifty five), then treat the rest as a decimal. 355.51 would come between 355.5 and 355.52.
J27: For the final number, go to the letter first and then read the rest as the whole number. J27 would come between H785 and K12.
