Example Question #1 : How To Subtract Decimals
A runner runs 10.2 miles east, then 2.3 miles west, then 1.4 miles east.
How many miles did the runner travel from where he started? (How far east did the runner go)?
When the runner is travelling east, it's in the positive direction. West is the negative direction. So we can compute it by doing the operation 10.2 + (–2.3) + 1.4 = 9.3
