Problem of the Day

Find a three-digit number that rounds to
440 and includes a digit that is the
quotient of 24 and 3. Is there more
than one possible answer? Explain your
thinking.
438; no; the numbers that round to 440
are 435-444, 24 divided by 3 is 8, and
438 is the only number with 8 as a
digit.

At the 2004 U.S. Gymnastics Championships,

Carly Patterson and Courtney Kupets tied for
the All-Around title.

Carly Patterson’s Preliminary Scores

Event Points
Floor exercise 9.7
Balance beam 9.7
Vault 9.3
Uneven bars 9.45

To find the total number of points, you add all

of the scores.
3-3 Adding and Subtracting Decimals
Additional Example 1A: Sports Application
What was Carly Patterson’s total for the
events other than the floor exercise?

9.7 + 9.3 + 9.45 Estimate by rounding to the

nearest whole number.
10 + 9 + 9 = 28 The total is about 28 points.

Additional Example 1A Continued

9.70 Align the decimal points.

9.30 Use zeros as placeholders.

+9.45 Add. Then place the decimal point.
28.45

Since 28.45 is close to the estimate of 28, the

answer is reasonable. Carly Patterson’s total for
the events other than the floor exercise was
28.45.

Additional Example 1B: Sports Application
How many more points did Carly need on the
vault to have a perfect score of 10?
Find the difference between 10 and 9.3.
10.0 Align the decimal points.
-9.3 Use zeros as placeholders.
0.7 Subtract. Then place the decimal point.

Carly needed another 0.7 of a point to have a

perfect score.

What was Carly Patterson’s total for the
events other than the vault exercise?
Find the sum of 9.7, 9.7, and 9.45.
Estimate by rounding to the
9.7 + 9.7 + 9.45 nearest whole number.

10 + 10 + 9 = 29 The total is about 29 points.

9.700 Use zeros as placeholders.

+9.450 Add. Then place the decimal point.
28.850

Since 28.850 is close to the estimate of 29, the

answer is reasonable. Carly Patterson’s total for
the events other than the vault exercise was
28.85.

-9.45 Use zeros as placeholders.
0.55 Subtract. Then place the decimal point.

Carly needed another 0.55 of a point to have a

perfect score.

Additional Example 2: Using Mental Math to Add
and Subtract Decimals
Find each sum or difference.
A. 1.8 + 0.2
1.8 + 0.2 = 2.0 Think: 0.8 + 0.2 = 1.

B. 4 – 0.7 Think: What number added

to 0.7 is 1?
4 – 0.7 = 3.3 0.7 + 0.3 = 1
So 1 – 0.7 = 0.3

Check It Out: Example 2

Find each sum or difference.
A. 1.6 + 0.4

1.6 + 0.4 = 2.0 Think: 0.6 + 0.4 = 1.

B. 6 – 0.3
Think: What number added
to 0.3 is 1?
6 – 0.3 = 5.7 0.3 + 0.7 = 1
So 1 – 0.3 = 0.7
