 ## Enter 2 numbers for Basic Math Operations:

<-- Number 1
<-- Number 2

386.21 + 331.28:
Line up our numbers vertically:

 3 8 6 . 2 1 + 3 3 1 . 2 8

 3 8 6 . 2 1 + 3 3 1 . 2 8 9

Column 1: 1 + 8 = 9

 3 8 6 . 2 1 + 3 3 1 . 2 8 4 9

Column 2: 2 + 2 = 4

 3 8 6 . 2 1 + 3 3 1 . 2 8 . 4 9

Drop in the decimal place

 3 8 6 . 2 1 + 3 3 1 . 2 8 7 . 4 9

Column 4: 6 + 1 = 7

 3 8 6 . 2 1 + 3 3 1 . 2 8 1 7 . 4 9

Column 5: 8 + 3 = 11
Since 11 > 9, we take the right digit = 1.
Carry the 1 for Column 6

 1 3 8 6 . 2 1 + 3 3 1 . 2 8 7 1 7 . 4 9

Column 6: Carry the 1 from Column 5
1 + 3 + 3 = 7
