## Texas Go Math Grade 5 Lesson 1.7 Answer Key Add and Subtract Decimals Through Thousandths

**Unlock the Problem**

At the 2010 Winter Olympics, Armin Zoeggeler r won the bronze medal in the men’s luge event, r In his fastest run, he completed the first interval in 21.261 seconds. It took him another 27.198 b seconds to reach the finish line. What was Zoeggeler’s finish time?

- Underline the sentence that tells you what you are trying to find.
- Circle the numbers you need to use.

Add decimals through thousandths. 21.261 + 27.198

THINK

- Line up the numbers in each place.

- First, add the thousandths.

- Then, add the hundredths, tenths, ones, and tens. Regroup as needed.

- Place the decimal point in the sum.

So,

Zoeggelerâ€™s finish time was 48.459 seconds.

**Mathematical Processes**

Why would you use paper and pencil instead of mental math to solve this problem?

Answer:

We can use mental math to solve simple equations. To do this, we put the equation into words and then form a question with those words. We then answer the question in our heads. We can also make use of inverse operations to reword questions if the answer isn’t obvious to us.

But,

In the above situation,

It is not possible because the given numbers are decimal numbers with three digits after the decimal point

**Try This!**

Use subtraction to check your work. Subtract one of the addends from the sum.

Addition and subtraction are opposite, or Inverse operations. You can use subtraction to check your answer to an addition problem.

Answer:

The given numbers from the above problem are: 21.261 and 27.198

Now,

To find out the answer to the above problem is correct or not,

We have to subtract the answer from one of the given numbers to get the second number,

If we didn’t get the second number, then the answer is not correct

So,

48.459 – 27.198 = 21.261

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that

The answer to the above problem is correct

**Example**

Zoeggeler finished the first half of the run in 31.116 seconds. The second half took only 17.343 seconds. How many seconds faster was the second half of the run?

Estimate. 31 – 17 = ___________

STEP 1

Line up the place values. Subtract the thousandths.

STEP 2

Subtract the hundredths. Subtract the tenths. Regroup as needed.

STEP 3

Subtract the ones and tens. Place the decimal point in the difference.

So,

Zoeggeler was 13.773 seconds faster in the second half of the run.

To check subtraction using the inverse operation, add the number you subtracted to the difference. The sum should equal the number you subtracted from.

**Math talk**

**Mathematical Processes**

Explain how you know without adding that the sum of 2.475 and 6.43 will result in a 5 in the thousandths place.

Answer:

The given numbers are: 2.475 and 6.43

Now,

When we observe the given numbers,

2.475 has the thousandths place value but 6.43 does not have the thousandths place value

So,

The representation of 6.43 with the thousandth place will be: 6.430

Now,

When we add the thousandths place of both the numbers, i.e., 5 + 0,

We will get the result as 5

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that

To make the numbers have the same place values when there are unequal place values, add zeros to the right side of the number that has the number of place values less than the other number
