• How would you do that with 3 + 4.5?
• 3 = 3 ones. 4 = 4 ones. 3 + 4.5 = 7.5
• Here is a simple way of adding decimals. (Like his example)
Let's say you have 26.52+67.26
First, you could line them up if you wanted to make it easier. We will move across the digits.
2+6 = 8 (9, with change.)
6+7=13. Now add the 1 to the 8. ^
Now we have 93. Now add the decimals. 0.5 + 0.2 = 0.7 0.02+ 0.06 = 0.08
Therefore, 93.78.

• I have a question? If you add 1.7 + 9 would it be 9.7
• Close... 1.7 + 9 would be 10.7 because 1 + 9 is 10, and 10 + 0.7 is 10.7.
