Addition of Like Decimals

Addition of Like Decimals Subtraction of Like Decimals



Before you learn How to Add Like Decimals , You must know:

What are Like Decimals ?
What is a Decimal Point ?
How to Find Place Values of Digits in Decimal ?

Learn addition of like decimals in the following steps:

  • Step 1: Write addends one below the other in such a way that decimal point and digit of same place values should be at same vertical order or same place

  • Step 2: Add the digits as we add digit in case of whole numbers

  • Step 3: Decimal Point of addends and Sum should be at same vertical order or same place.

    Example -. let's try to understand the following example by adding 5.24 and 7.63
    Solution: Steps for addition are as follows:

    Step 1: Write addends one below the other in such a way that decimal point and digit of same place values should be at same vertical order or at same place and we get:

    5.24
    7.63

    Step 2: Add the digits as we add digit in case of whole numbers

    5.24
    7.63

    1287



    Step 3: Decimal Point of add ends and Sum should be at same vertical order or at same place.

    5.24
    7.63

    12.87



    Hence, on adding decimals 5.24 and 7.63 we get decimal 12.87
