Adding decimals is easy when you keep your work neat

To add decimals, follow these steps:

  • Write down the numbers, one under the other, with the decimal points lined up
  • Add in zeros so the numbers have the same length.
  • Then add using column addition, remembering to put the decimal point in the answer.

Example: Add 1.452 to 1.3

Line the decimals up:     1.452
    + 1.3
       
Add zeros in:     1.452
    + 1.300
       
Add:     1.452
    + 1.300
      2.752

That's all there is to it - just remember to line up the decimals, add in any zeros, then add normally.
