Answer the word problems below. Highlight the important words and numbers. Remember to write you answer in a full sentence.
1. Brandon has $109.87 in his savings account. Dana has $187.09 in her savings account. How much more money does Dana have than Brandon?

Subtract $109.87 from $187.09. Stack the numbers and keep the decimal points lined up.


Dana has $77.22 more than Brandon

2. Sarah just had a birthday and received a lot of money. She received $50.25 from her grandparents in Chicago, $75.77 from her grandparents in London, and $100 from her parents. How much money did Sarah receive in all?

Add the three amounts. $50.25 + $75.77 + $100. Line up the decimal points.

+ 100.00

Sarah received $226.02 in all.

3. Don sells some video games to 4 friends. He is paid $100.40. If each friend spent the same amount of money, how money did each friend pay to Don?

Divide $100.40 by 4. Divide $100 first (100 ÷ 4 = 25) then divide 0.40 (0.40 ÷ 4 = 0.10). Add the 25 and 0.10 to get $25.10.
Each friend paid Don $25.10

4. Kelly wants to buy 8 bags of popcorn to give to her friends at the weekly movie night. Each bag costs $0.75. How much total money will Kelly spend?

Multiply $0.75 by 8 (0.75 x 8 = 6)
Kelly will spend $6.00
