00:00:00.910 --> 00:00:07.940
Calculate the following: 0.96 plus 0.19.
00:00:09.210 --> 00:00:12.730
The first thing we need to do is line these values up vertically.
00:00:14.370 --> 00:00:22.830
This step is really important as we line up the decimal points to ensure that all the place values are lined up with each other.
00:00:23.770 --> 00:00:29.060
In the hundredths place, we’re adding six plus nine which equals 15.
00:00:29.300 --> 00:00:31.870
We write down our five, carry our one.
00:00:32.370 --> 00:00:38.670
In the tenths place, we’re adding one plus nine plus one which equals 11.
00:00:38.850 --> 00:00:41.540
We write down our one and carry a one.
00:00:42.090 --> 00:00:44.670
After that, we need to bring down our decimal point.
00:00:45.530 --> 00:00:51.160
And finally, we’ll add the units: one plus zero plus zero equals one.
00:00:51.940 --> 00:01:00.710
The sum here is one and 15 hundredths, 1.15 — one and 15 hundredths.
