Simplification in Decimals
Simplification in decimals can be done with the help of PEMDAS Rule.
PEMDAS Rule Table
From the above chart we can observe that first we have to work on "P or Parentheses" and then on "E or Exponents", then from left to right doing either "Multiplication" or "Division" as we find them in the question.
Then from left to right doing either "Addition" or "Subtraction" as we find them we need to solve them accordingly.
Let us consider some of the examples on simplification in decimals:
1. Solve 5.8 – 2.7 + 1.4 – 1.6
Solution:
We first group the numbers having same signs and then add
them. Subtract the sum of the numbers with – sign from the sum of the numbers
with + sign.
First step: Add 5.8, 1.4 and 2.7 and 1.6
Second step: Now subtract 4.3 from 7.2
Hence, 5.8 – 2.7 + 1.4 – 1.6 = 2.9
2. 4.5 + 3.7 – 3.6 ÷ 1.2
Solution:
4.5 + 3.7 – 3.6 ÷ 1.2
= 4.5 + 3.7 – 3.0
= 8.2 – 3.0
= 5.2
Answers: 5.2
3. 3 ÷ 16 + 1.2 × \(\frac{1}{4}\)  {\(\frac{1}{5}\) + (1  0.8) }
Solution:
3 ÷ 16 + 1.2 × \(\frac{1}{4}\)  {\(\frac{1}{5}\) + (1  0.8) }
3 ÷ 16 + 1.2 × \(\frac{1}{4}\)  {\(\frac{1}{5}\) + 1  0.8}
= 3 ÷ 16 + 1.2 × \(\frac{1}{4}\)  {\(\frac{1 + 5  4.0}{5}\)}
= 3 ÷ 16 + 1.2 × \(\frac{1}{4}\)  {\(\frac{6  4}{5}\)}
= 3 ÷ 16 + 1.2 × \(\frac{1}{4}\)  {\(\frac{2}{5}\)}
= 3 ÷ 16 + 1.2 × \(\frac{1}{4}\)  \(\frac{2}{5}\)
= \(\frac{3}{16}\) + \(\frac{1.2}{4}\) – \(\frac{2}{5}\)
= \(\frac{15 + 24  32}{80}\)
= \(\frac{7}{80}\)
= 0.0875

We will learn uses decimals in every day. In daily life we use decimals while dealing with length, weight, money etc. Use of Decimals whole Dealing with Money: 100 paise = 1 rupee We know that one paise in one hundredth of a rupee.
We will discuss here about the addition of decimals. Decimals are added in the same way as we add ordinary numbers. We arrange the digits in columns and then add as required. Let us consider some
We will discuss here about the subtraction of decimals. Decimals are subtracted in the same way as we subtract ordinary numbers. We arrange the digits in columns
Equivalent decimal fractions are unlike fractions which are equal in value. Numbers obtained by inserting zeros after the extreme right digit in the decimal part of a decimal number are known as equivalent decimals.

In 5th Grade Decimals Worksheet contains various types of questions on operations on decimal numbers. The questions are based on formation of decimals, comparing decimals, Converting Fractions to Decimals, Addition of decimals, subtraction of decimals, multiplication of
While comparing natural numbers we first compare total number of digits in both the numbers and if they are equal then we compare the digit at the extreme left. If they also equal then we compare the next digit and so on. We follow the same pattern while comparing the
Decimal numbers can be expressed in expanded form using the placevalue chart. In expanded form of decimal fractions we will learn how to read and write the decimal numbers. Note: When a decimal is missing either in the integral part or decimal part, substitute with 0.
Division of a decimal number by 10, 100 or 1000 can be performed by moving the decimal point to the left by as many places as the number of zeroes in the divisor. The rules of division of decimal fractions by 10, 100, 1000 etc. are discussed here.
Addition of decimal numbers are similar to addition of whole numbers. We convert them to like decimals and place the numbers vertically one below the other in such a way that the decimal point lies exactly on the vertical line. Add as usual as we learnt in the case of whole

Practice the math questions given in the worksheet on dividing decimals. Divide the decimals to find the quotient, same like dividing whole numbers. This worksheet would be really good for the students to practice huge number of decimal division problems.
To divide a decimal number by a whole number the division is performed in the same way as in the whole numbers. We first divide the two numbers ignoring the decimal point and then place the decimal point in the quotient in the same position as in the dividend.
