    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
