Thanks for the feedback!
align the decimals and subtract as you normally would. make sure after subtracting you bring the decimal down. replace empty space with zeros. for example: 1.340 - 1.3250 w…ill look like this 1.340 - 1.3250 another example: 10.39485 - 9.847 will look like this. 10.39485 - 9.84700
You line up the decimals and simply subtract. Below is an example. 2.989-1.989=2.989 1.989 --------- 1.000
a difference The difference . Answer is difference.
Can each of the digits 01234 and 5 exactly once to write a decimal subtraction problem The difference must be the same as one of the decimals in the problem?
3.04 - 1.52=1.52
How can you use the digits 0 1 2 3 4 and 5 exactly once in a decimal subtraction problem and the difference must be the same as one of the decimals in the problem?
It is called the divedent.
Where the decimal is placed you just have to bring it straight down.
First you write the decimals one under the other, in such as way that the decimal points are aligned.
This happens when an answer to a problem that is a decimal is rounded in order to produce a meaningful answer?
You lose some accuracy in exchange for better understanding. If that is the only reason for rounding, then the unrounded version should be used for subsequent calculations.
Like you would regular numbers. 12.43 - 5.31 ---------- 7.12
When you are adding and subtracting decimals, youare +/- ing the whole numbers and tenths in the number. the decimal might go away ex: 1.3-0.3=1 or it won't ex: 1.9-0.3=1.6
You can either convert the decimal to a fraction and then subtract (3/4 - 0.5=3/4 - 2/4=1/4), OR you can convert the fraction to a decimal and then subtract (3/4 - 0.5=0….75 - 0.5=0.25).
you add and subtract decimals by writing down your number and then line up your decimal's.yourwelcome kinda smart for a math problem like that huh?
If you calculated x - y=z then calculate z + y. If the answer is x your calculation is fine. If not, one of the sums went wrong.
Its easy, dont worry about the decimal and do regular subtraction and at the end just add the decimal right under all the other decimals.
Subtract the smaller one from the bigger one, and then put a minus sign before the answer.
because you subtract the 2 numerators and then 2 denominators right across just like that :)
