Let’s take one more look at the lunch order from the start of
Decimals , this time noticing how the numbers were added together.
All three items (sandwich, water, tax) were priced in dollars and cents, so we lined up the dollars under the dollars and the cents under the cents, with the
decimal point s lined up between them. Then we just added each column, as if we were adding whole numbers. By lining up
decimal s this way, we can add or subtract the corresponding place values just as we did with whole numbers.
Add or subtract decimals.
Write the numbers vertically so the decimal points line up.
Use zeros as place holders, as needed.
Add or subtract the numbers as if they were whole numbers. Then place the decimal in the answer under the decimal points in the given numbers.
Add:
$3.7+12.4.$
Solution
$3.7+12.4$
Write the numbers vertically so the decimal points line up.
How much change would you get if you handed the cashier a
$\text{\$20}$ bill for a
$\text{\$14.65}$ purchase? We will show the steps to calculate this in the next example.
Subtract:
$20-14.65.$
Solution
$20-14.65$
Write the numbers vertically so the decimal points line up. Remember 20 is a whole number, so place the decimal point after the 0.
Place two zeros after the decimal point in 20, as place holders so that both numbers have two decimal places.
Subtract the numbers as if they were whole numbers. Then place the decimal in the answer under the decimal points in the given numbers.
If we subtract
$7.4$ from
$2.51,$ the answer will be negative since
$7.4>2.51.$ To subtract easily, we can subtract
$2.51$ from
$7.4.$ Then we will place the negative sign in the result.
$2.51-7.4$
Write the numbers vertically so the decimal points line up.
Place zero after the 4 in 7.4 as a place holder, so that both numbers have two decimal places.
Subtract and place the decimal in the answer.
Remember that we are really subtracting
$2.51-7.4$ as a place holder, so that both numbers have two decimal places.

what is simplest way to understand the applications of nano robots used to detect the cancer affected cell of human body.?
How this robot is carried to required site of body cell.?
what will be the carrier material and how can be detected that correct delivery of drug is done
Rafiq
Rafiq
if virus is killing to make ARTIFICIAL DNA OF GRAPHENE FOR KILLED THE VIRUS .THIS IS OUR ASSUMPTION
Anam
analytical skills graphene is prepared to kill any type viruses .

A soccer field is a rectangle 130 meters wide and 110 meters long. The coach asks players to run from one corner to the other corner diagonally across. What is that distance, to the nearest tenths place.
Jeannette has $5 and $10 bills in her wallet. The number of fives is three more than six times the number of tens. Let t represent the number of tens. Write an expression for the number of fives.
why surface tension is zero at critical temperature
Shanjida
I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason

Need to simplify the expresin. 3/7 (x+y)-1/7 (x-1)=
