### Example Question #2 : How To Add

Round 2342 to the nearest hundred.     Explanation:

First, identify which number is in the hundreds place.  The hundreds place is 3 places to the left of the decimal.  In this case, 3 is in the hundreds place.

If the numbers to the right of the 3 are 50 or more, then we will round it up to 4.  If they are less than 50, we will leave the 3 the same.  Here, we have 42, so the 3 will remain the same.  The two numbers to the right become zeroes.

We round 342 down to 300.  The 2 in the thousands place remains the same.

### Example Question #1 : Adding Multi Digit Decimals

Find the sum of 2.4, 55, and 6.21.      Explanation:

To find the sum, you need to add. Line up all numbers vertically. Since one number has a decimal to the tenths place, one has a decimal to the hundredths place, and one has no decimal, be extra careful to line up the digits correctly! To help you, add a zero to the end of 2.4, and add two zeroes to the end of 55 so that all the digits line up correctly. Now, add down each column, starting on the right side and moving to the left. The sum is 63.61.
