ADDING AND SUBTRACTING
MEASUREMENT
Measurement…I thought we
were done with that 
 Get yourself a tissue and pay attention.
 First off, we learned how to convert
measurement.
 Second, some of the questions on the PSSA
will ask you to add or subtract measurement.
 What we will do today is to add and
subtraction measurement.
 Psss…you’re going to need your Formula
Sheet (aka BFF) to get the conversions
Adding Measurement
 Example: 4 ft 7 in + 9 ft 6 in
 First, we want to write vertically
4 ft 7 in
+ 9 ft 6 in
13 ft 13 in
Can we have 13 inches?
 So we need to change 13 inches.
 13 inches = 1 ft 1 in
 13 ft
+ 1 ft 1 in
14 ft 1 in
You try
 12 lb 8 oz + 9 lb 11 oz




12 lb 8 oz
+ 9 lb 11 oz
21 lb 19 oz
19 oz = 1 lb 3 oz
21 lb
+ 1 lb 3 oz
22 lb 3 oz
Subtracting Measurement
 Example: 9 ft 4 in – 3 ft 9 in
 First, we want to write vertically
8 16

9 ft 4 in
 - 3 ft 9 in

5 ft 7 in
We move one foot which is 12 inches
over with the 4 inches
What can we do?
You try
 Example: 27 lb 7 oz – 19 lb 12 oz
26 23

27 lb 7 oz
 - 19 lb 12 oz

7 lb 11 oz
We move one pound which is 16
ounces over with the 7 ounces
