In this video, we learn how to subtract decimals. If you can subtract using basic numbers, then you will be able to subtract decimals. First, you will line up the tens and the other units of the numbers. Once this is finished, you will start to take away the top number from the bottom number. Borrow from the number to the left if you need to, then write down what you are left with on the bottom. Once you come up with your number, make sure you place in the decimal point where it goes. All you have to do is line everything up so the units are in the right spots!
