Addition of Decimal Numbers

If there are more than two numbers with 2 or more digits after the decimal point, it is easier to add the numbers vertically as illustrated previously.

Remember to 'line up the decimal points' in the numbers to be added.

Tip: You may prefer to use a calculator and/or paper & pencil to assist you. There is an on-screen calculator available from
