# Decimal Operations

### Learn to add, subtract, multiply and divide with decimals

## Adding Decimals

Steps:

- Write down the numbers, one under the other, with the decimal lined up.
- Put in zeros so the number have the same lenght.
- Then add using column addition, remembering to put the decimal point in the answer.

## Subtracting Decimals

Steps:

- Write down the two numbers, one under the other, with the decimal point lined up.
- Add zeros so the numbers have the same lenght.
- Then subtract normally, remembering to put the decimal point in the answer.

## Multiplying Decimals

Steps:

- Multiply normally,ignoring the decimal points.
- Then put the decimal point in the answer-it will have as many decimal places as two original numbers combined.

## Dividing Decimals

Steps:

- Use division or long division (ignoring the decimal point).
- Then put the decimal point in the same spot as the dividend (the number being divided).
