• how do you do the addition of decimals more simple?
• Adding up decimals is as easy as adding up whole numbers. If you line up the place values correctly, the addition is the same. Whenever you set up a decimal addition problem, just double-check that the tenths place of the first number lines up with the tenths place of the second number and so on.

• how do you do the addition of decimals more simple?
• Think of adding with decimals as adding with normal numbers. For example:
8.74 + 9.3
You can write 9.3 as 9.30, as I will do for this example:
8.74 → 874 and 9.3 → 930
Then, add 874 and 930, which comes out to 1,804.

Finally, put the decimals back in. Your answer should come out to be 18.04. Check it with a calculator -- it's correct.
