    Example of addition of decimal fractions

    Q. There are 3 bags. The first bag weighs 24 kilos and 200 grams. The second one weighs 7 kilos and 59 grams. The third one weighs 2 kilos and 3 grams. Find the total weight of all three bags.

    Solution:

    1000 grams = 1 kg.

    So, the weight of each of the 3 bags in kilograms is as below:

    Bag 1

    Bag 2

    Bag 3

    Weight in kg and gms

    24 kgs and 200 gms

    7 kgs and 59 gms

    2 kgs and 3 gms

    Converting gms to kgs

    200 gms = 200 kg

    1000

    = 0.200 kg

    59 gms = 50 kg

    1000

    = 0.059 kg

    3 gms = 3 kg

    1000

    = 0.003 kg

    Weight in kg

    24.200 kg

    7.059 kg

    2.003 kg

    To find the total weight of the bags, 24.200 kg, 7.059 kg, and 2.003 kg must be added.
