### To add or subtract decimals, you must line up the decimal points.

• A.

True

• B.

False

• C.

Depends

A. True
Explanation
When adding or subtracting decimals, it is necessary to line up the decimal points. This is because the decimal point represents the separation between the whole number and the fractional part of the decimal. By aligning the decimal points, it ensures that the corresponding place values are being added or subtracted correctly. If the decimal points are not lined up, the calculation would be inaccurate and the result would not be correct. Therefore, it is important to line up the decimal points when performing addition or subtraction with decimals.
