5th Maths : Term 1 Unit 4 : Measurements : Addition of Length

Example

1. Find the sum of the following.

(i) 7 m 25 cm + 15 m 50 cm

Sum = 22 m 75 cm

Step 1: Start from centimeter

25 cm + 50 cm = 75 cm

7 m + 15 m = 25 m

(ii) 5 km 700 m + 12 km 450m

Sum = 18 km 150 m

700 + 450 = 1150

Step 2: Convert meter into kilometer

1150 ÷ 1000 = 1 km 150 m

Step 3: Add 1 km to the km column

1 km + 5 km + 12 km = 18 km

1+5+12=18
