Henry recorded the amount of rain that fell over 2 hours. In the first hour, Henry measured 2.35 centimeters of rain. In the second hour, he measured 1.82 centimeters of rain.

Henry estimated that about 4 centimeters of rain fell in 2 hours What is the total amount of rain that fell? How can you use this estimate to decide if your answer is reasonable?

5 hundredths + 2 hundredths = ______________ hundredths.
5 hundredths + 2 hundredths = 7 hundredths.

• Then add the tenths and ones. Regroup as needed. • Record the sum for each place value. Draw a quick picture to check your work.

So, ___________ centimeters of rain fell.
Since ___________ is close to the estimate, 4, the answer is reasonable.
So, 4.17 centimeters of rain fell.
Since 4.17 is close to the estimate, 4, the answer is reasonable.

Mathematical Processes
Explain how you know when you need to regroup in a decimal addition problem.
For decimals, we line up the decimal points so that the whole number parts line up and the decimal parts line up. Then add each. To add decimal numbers follow the step below. … Place the decimal point of the result in line with the other decimal points.

Equivalent Decimals When adding decimals, you can use equivalent decimals to help keep the numbers aligned in each place. Add zeros to the right of the last digit as needed, so that the addends have the same number of decimal places.
