Textbook Problem

In one week of training for the San Francisco Marathon, Jessy Bergeman had training runs of 4.3 miles, 9.7 miles, 5.9 miles, 18.4 miles, and 5.4 miles. What was the total distance for these training runs?

To determine

**To calculate:** The total distance for training runs in one week of training for the San Francisco Marathon, when Jessy Bergeman had training runs of 4.3 miles, 9.7 miles, 5.9 miles, 18.4 miles, and 5.4 miles.

Explanation

**Given Information:**

The provided distances for training runs are 4.3 miles, 9.7 miles, 5.9 miles, 18.4 miles, and 5.4 miles.

**Formula used:**

For adding and subtracting decimal numbers.

Step 1: Write all the numbers vertically aligning at decimal points.

Step 2: Add zeros to the right of the decimal numbers where ever necessary.

Step 3: Work from right to left while performing the indicated operations.

Step 4: In the answer place the decimal point is at the same place as in the problem.

**Calculation:**

To find the total distance, add all values of distance.

Now, align all the distances vertically at decimal points,

Now, perform addition from right to left,
