**Addition
and Subtraction of Decimals**

In

**addition of decimals**or**subtraction of decimals**, we should arrange the decimal numbers vertically in such a way that their decimal points be in the same vertical line. After the decimal point for any number, we can put as many zeros as the place value needs. Then the operation of addition or subtraction is done as normally as in the case of whole numbers.**For example:**

**Addition (+)**: 3.12 + 12.923 + 124.5769

**Subtraction (–)**: 15.102 – 9.89
