line them up!
What is:
1. \$7.54 + \$3.56?
2. \$15.00 - \$6.27?
3. \$0.75 + \$1.25 + \$6.79?
4. 75.425 + 3.5005?
5. 98.322 – 7.0545?

line them up!
What is:
1. \$7.54 + \$3.56 = \$11.10
2. \$15.00 - \$6.27 = \$8.73
3. \$0.75 + \$1.25 + \$6.79 = \$8.79
4. 75.425 + 3.5005 =78.9255
5. 98.322 – 7.0545 = 91.2675

Multiplying Decimals
Multiplying decimals is counterintuitive.
 What is 0.10 * 6?
 Think about money. 0.10 is a dime,
and you have 6 of them, so how
much do you have? 0.60.

Multiplying Decimals
0.1 * 0.6 =

0.06
0.1 * 0.6 =
Or… one tenth of 6 tenths is 6 hundredths.

2.50 * 0.1 ?
87.655 * 0.001?
125.75 * 1.0?
Try it!

2.50 * 0.1 = 0.250
87.655 * 0.001 = 0.087655
125.75 * 1.0 = 12.575
Dividing Decimals
Dividing decimals can be counter-intuitive.
Dividing a decimal by a decimal can give you a
larger number.
0.6 &divide;
0.1=
Or… there are
6 tenths in 0.6.
