Decimal Addition Worksheets – With Carrying

We’ve got decimal addition worksheets with varying degrees of difficulty here – all freely downloadable, of course. Unlike these decimal addition worksheets, the worksheets you find here do involve a little bit of carrying. The trick with adding numbers with decimal places is to make sure the decimal point in the answer is in the correct position. To do this, the best thing to do is follow the decimal point down through the two summing numbers and place it in the answer box first. Then do the sum.

Adding numbers that have decimal places follows the same process as adding numbers without: you start by adding the numbers in the rightmost column and then move to the next column to the left.
