Thinkboard - Week 4

WALT: Add and Subtract decimals.



This week we focused our learning around subtracting decimals. Something I learnt this week is to never split up the first number of the equation, while partitioning. For example: 2.867 - 0.242 would equal to 2.625. This is how I solved it.
2.867-0.002=2.865
2.865-0.04=2.825
2.825-0.2=2.652
So the answer is 2.625. As you can see I split the second number and left the first number, the same.
