Fine, now let's try ADDITION OF DECIMALS.

9/270 = 1/30

When the numbers containing the decimals are

lined up, the problem should look like this -

6.89

+.357

The next problem is to see if

the top quantity

has the same number of digits to

the right of the

decimal point as the second or

bottom quantity

has. If there is a difference, a

zero is added or

placed for each digit needed.

Remember placing zeros after a decimal point

(to the right) does not change the value. In this

problem a zero is added or placed after the "9" to

make the addition easier by lining up vertical

columns.

6.890

+.357
