Hi Sarah Rebekah13;

I Post Sometime on the Help me forum.And noBody post on my Question.

Probably no one saw it. Over here almost everything gets a response from someone. Lots of math brains here.

I can't speak for everyone but that is usually the case when I don't respond. Or because someone else has already done a better job then I could do.

\$1 7 0 . 0 9
+   8 0 . 2 5
---------------

5 + 9 =14 put down the 4 and carry the 1

1
\$1 7 0 . 0 9
+   8 0 . 2 5
---------------
4

1 + 2 = 3 it is not bigger than 9 so no carry, just write it down.

\$1 7 0 . 0 9
+   8 0 . 2 5
---------------
. 3 4

0 + 0 = 0

\$1 7 0 . 0 9
+   8 0 . 2 5
---------------
0  . 3 4

8 + 7 = 15 put down the 5 carry the 1

1
\$1 7 0 . 0 9
+   8 0 . 2 5
---------------
5 0  . 3 4

1+1 = 2

\$1 7 0 . 0 9
+   8 0 . 2 5
---------------
\$ 2 5 0 . 3 4

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Hi Sarah;

Forget the answer, was the method clear to you?
