## Answers

You just have to add each amount of snow to figure out the total. This will get you 10.989

Answer:10.989Step-by-step explanation:This is an addition problem. We can, first, set up all our decimals in a vertical setup: ₁[tex]+\left\begin{array}{cccc}4.&3.&5&9\\3.&5&6\\3.&0&7\end{array}\right\\\\[/tex]_______________ 1 0 . 9 8 9We get 9 for the first row because we are adding 9 + 0.For the next row, we are adding 5 + 6 + 7. We can break this up into 5 + 5 + 1 + 7.Since that's just 10 + 8, our answer is 18. We carry the 1 and write the 8 .For the third row, we can add 1 + 3 + 5 + 0. This is equivalent to 9 + 0, so our answer will be carrying a leaving a 9 in the open spot. For our final row, we have a decimal, so we will be placing a dot. For our numbers, we have + 4 + 3 + 3. This is 6 + 4 + , which is 10.Since this is our last row, we do not carry, but write the number as it is. Our answer is 10.989.
