Example Question #36 : Add, Subtract, Multiply, And Divide Decimals To Hundredths: Ccss.Math.Content.5.Nbt.B.7

Add:

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

We can use base ten blocks to help us solve this problem. Let's review what our base ten blocks are by using a whole number 

Base ten blocks

When we put this together, we add:

To use base ten blocks to add decimal numbers, we need to think of the base ten blocks a little differently. We think of the hundreds block as one whole. The tens block as tenths because you would need ten of these to make one whole. Finally, the ones block as hundredths because you would need a hundred of these to make one whole: 

Base ten blocks decimal

Let's look at this problem:

First, we want to represent the  with four tenths blocks and five hundredths blocks: 

45

Next, we want to represent the  with one tenths block and three hundredths blocks:

13

Now, we want to combine our blocks together:

58

We can see that we now have five tenths blocks and eight hundredths blocks, which means our answer is

Let's look at this problem:

First, we want to represent the  with five tenths blocks and six hundredths blocks: 

56

Next, we want to represent the  with one tenths block and seven hundredths blocks:

17

Now, we want to combine our blocks together:

73

Notice that we have more than ten hundredths blocks. This means we can take ten of the hundredths blocks and make another tenths block:

73 1

73 2

We can see that we now have seven tenths blocks and three hundredths blocks, which means our answer is

Example Question #2 : Add Decimals

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Adding decimals is just like adding whole numbers. But, you must remember your decimal in your answer.

You start adding on the far right which in this case is the hundredths place. . We have to carry a  from the sum  above the tenths place and place the other  below the hundredths place. Screen shot 2020 09 11 at 11.53.18 am

Next, add the tenths place. Screen shot 2020 09 11 at 11.53.23 am

The decimal will be carried down and remain between the tenths place and the ones place. Screen shot 2020 09 11 at 11.53.27 am

The final addition portion is the ones place. Screen shot 2020 09 11 at 11.53.32 am

The final answer is
