Decimal Addition With 3 Numbers



Addition of three decimals is similar to addition of two decimals.

  • The decimals are first aligned vertically so that digits of same place value are added.

  • Zeros are added to the right of decimal numbers where ever necessary so that all numbers have the same number of digits after the decimal point.
