## How to Add decimal fractions?

While adding the decimal fractions convert both the decimal fractions to like decimal fractions and then write the numbers one below the other in such a way that the digits in the decimal part of both the decimal fractions are aligned as per their place values.

For example,

(i) Add 24.15 and 2.008. Solution:

In the given problem, 2.008 has 3 decimal places, while 24.15 has 2.

24.15 can be written as 24.150.

Write the second number underneath first such that the decimal points come exactly one under the other.

 2 . 0 0 8 + 2 4 . 1 5 0

So, the numbers are placed correctly. Now,

 2 . 0 0 8 + 2 4 . 1 5 0 2 6 . 1 5 8
