# Find the sum in each of the following:

(a) 0.007 + 8.5 + 30.08

(b) 15 + 0.632 + 13.8

(c) 27.076 + 0.55 + 0.004

(d) 25.65 + 9.005 + 3.7

(e) 0.75 + 10.425 + 2

(f) 280.69 + 25.2 + 38

**Solution:**

To add two or more unlike decimals, we first have to convert them into like decimals by adding or removing extra zeros from the right of the decimal point.

(a) 0.007 + 8.5 + 30.08

= 0.007 + 8.500 + 30.080 = 38.587

(b) 15 + 0.632 + 13.8

= 15.000 + 0.632 + 13.800 = 29.432

(c) 27.076 + 0.55 + 0.004

= 27.076 + 0.550 + 0.004 = 27.630

(d) 25.65 + 9.005 + 3.7

= 25.650 + 9.005 + 3.700 = 38.355

(e) 0.75 + 10.425 + 2

= 0.750 + 10.425 + 2.000 = 13.175

(f) 280.69 + 25.2 + 38

= 280.69 + 25.20 + 38.00 = 343.89
