Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free subtracting decimals worksheet of 30+ questions and answers
Decimal numbers can be subtracted in the same way as integers. The important thing to consider with subtraction of decimals is place value. Tenths should be subtracted from tenths, hundredths from hundredths, thousandths from thousandths etc.
When using column subtraction to subtract decimals, the key is to ensure the decimal points are lined up. The values in each column can then be subtracted in the same way that we work with whole numbers.
A common application of decimal addition and subtraction is money.
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional decimals worksheets and other number worksheets, for example a multiplying and dividing decimals worksheet or an order of operations worksheet.
