Answer

Two hundred and thirty-three point zero five six.

Work Step by Step

To write the given decimal number in words, we begin with the whole numbers. In this case, it is 233 $=$ Two hundred thirty-three. Then comes the decimal point. While reading or writing we say or write the '$.$' as 'point' instead of 'decimal point'. After the decimal point, the digit's names are written separately (ie, zero five six NOT fifty-six) 0 $=$ Zero 5 $=$ Five 6 $=$ Six So the answer is Two hundred and thirty-three point zero five six.
