how to subtract numbers with decimals

Line up the decimal points and proceed the same way as you would when subtracting whole numbers. Example:


It works the same when adding decimalized numbers.


1) When adding or subtracting decimals, always line up the decimals.

2) Then, just subtract like you would always do

Hope I helped..:-)
