# What is 5 - 0.005 - 0.05 + 0.5?

Nov 19, 2017

5.445

#### Explanation:

You can plug those values in a calculator and get the answer, but here is how you can do it yourself:

$5$ is the same as $5.0$ same as $5.00$ and so on (just different precisions), so we can do the following:

$5.000 - 0.005 = 4.995$

Next we subtract the second number:

$4.995 - 0.05 = 4.945$

And lastly, we add $0.5$:

$4.945 + 0.5 = 5.445$
