__Objectives:__

- Determine the sum of a decimal and a whole number.
- Determine the sum of two multi-digit decimals that requires multiple regrouping.

__What is a decimal?__

A decimal is a number that has a whole number part separated by with a decimal point from the fractional part.

__What does it mean to "carry a 1"?__

Also known as "regrouping", we will "carry a 1" when we are adding two one-digit numbers where the sum is greater than 9. For example, let's look at the sum of two one-digit numbers, 8 and 2. We know that 8 + 2 = 10. Since 10 is a two-digit number, we will need to "carry a 1". This means that we will write "0" below the subtraction line and then "carry the 1" to the next higher column. Let's look at an example below!

__The Sum of a Decimal and a Whole Number__
