# Subtracting Decimals for 5th Grade Math

To subtract decimal fractions the key is the knowledge of place value. Stack both the decimal fractions in such a way that decimals **ALIGN** and then subtract normally. Some decimal places can be empty in either of the numbers and you can use zeroes to fill those for simplicity.

Again stack decimals above each other and don't forget to write decimal in your answer. Below is an explanation of the concept followed by an easy worksheet to practice.
