A "decade" is a period of 10 years (in the same way that a "century" is a period of 100 years). There are other words that start with "dec" and refer to "10" (coming from the Latin and Greek). "December" was originally the 10th month of the Roman year. "Decimals" is the system of numbers based on 10. The word "decimate", which now normally means to "kill or destroy a large part", historically m eant to "kill one in every 10 of a group (citizens, soldiers etc) as a collective punishment".
