In addition to money, we will learn how to add up the amounts of money using rupees and paisas. We perform with money the same way we do with decimals. When adding, we have to note that the amounts of money will be converted into paisas.

We get to know two different methods to solve the addition with rupees and paisas. Students can practice both methods.

(i) Addition of the amounts with conversion into Paisa

(ii) Adding the amounts without converting them to Paisa

1. Supplement with conversion:

All amounts given are converted into paisas. The numbers obtained are added up as ordinary numbers, and then the sum is expressed in rupees and paisas.

Adding money With the conversion method we convert rupees and paises into paises and then add up as usual like ordinary numbers. If necessary, we finally put the point after two digits from the right.

Consider some of the examples:

1. Add 25.30 and Rs 40343 without regrouping.

Rs 25.30 2530 Paise

+ € 40.43+ 4043 Paise

6573 Paise

We can write too 6573 Paise as Rs 65.73

2. Add 71.55 and Rs 81.56 with regrouping.

Rs 71.55 7155 Paise

+ 81.56 rupees + 8156 Paise

15311 Paise

We can write too 15311 Paise as Rs 153.11

2. Addition without conversion:

(i) Rupees and Paisa are arranged in columns. The decimal points are exactly in one line.

(ii) The amounts shown are added as normal numbers.

(iii) The decimal point is put in the sum.

When adding money without a conversion method, we arrange the amount in columns, ie paises under paises, rupees under rupees and point under point. Now add up as normal numbers as usual.

Mary went to the store and bought apples for Rs. 45.50 and oranges for Rs 57.63. How much money did she spend in total?

Let’s help Mary figure out the total amount she spent at the store. To find this we need to add Rs. 45.50 and Rs. 57.63.

To add, we’re going to put the amount in columns, i.e. paises under paises, rupees under rupees, and point under point. Now add them like normal numbers as usual.

Step I: Arrange backs and paise in columns.

Step II: Add 45.50 + 57.63

The points are exactly one below the other.

So Mary spent Rs. 103.13 p

Note: We write 00 instead of Paise if the amount does not contain a Paise.

Consider some of the examples of adding money:

1. Add Rs 24.52 and Rs 15.23

25.30 €

+ € 40.43

€ 39.75

2. Add Rs 65.56 and Rs 72.67

Rs 65.56

+ 72.67 rupees

Rs 138.23

3. Add Rs. 15.35, Rs. 45.29 and Rs. 16.45


We put rupees and paises in columns and add them up as whole numbers.

fifteen . 3 5

4 5. 2 9

+ 1 6. 4 5

7 7. 0 9

Hence, Rs. 15.35 + Rs. 45.29 + Rs. 16.45 = Rs. 77.09
