There are different ways to add decimals involving hundredths. One method is to combine the total number of hundredths, while another involves breaking the numbers down into tenths and hundredths and adding them separately. A more complicated example shows how these techniques can be used to arrive at a whole number plus a fraction. Understanding these concepts is important before moving on to faster methods.

• Hi everyone im not so great at this us there any tips u could give me if so thank u ☺️
think about place values and see if that helps you make better sense of what is going on. 6.3 is 6 ones and 3 tenths. 2.9 is 2 ones and 9 tenths. We can add the like terms together. 6 ones and 2 ones gives us 8 ones. 3 tenths and 9 tenths gives us 12 tenths. Now we're left with 8 ones and 12 tenths. To add these together, we have to make them have the same unit. If we have 12 tenths, we also have 1.2 ones. 8 ones plus 1.2 ones gives us 9.2 ones. You could also do this by changing them all to tenths. 6.3 is 63 tenths. 2.9 is 29 tenths. 63 + 29 = 92. The answer is 92 tenths, or 9.2. I hope this helps. If you want help understanding why it isn't 10.0, please type out your work and we can analyze the error.
I hope this helps.
