For an estimation, you could truncate to 1 decimal place and add: 9.3+5.1=14.4 To get a better estimate, add the second decimal place, if it is 5 or more, then round up the estimate. Second decimal place = 2+3=5 >=5, so round up 14.4 to 14.5.

Did I get it right ? :-)
Yep! Now you just neeed to round up until you get to the last decimal place. What do you think the 5 could be rounded to? up to 6, or down to stay at 5?
6?
Good, now you have 14.46, what can that be rounded to?
Uummm 14.50?? :-P
Yes, but you do not need the 0 after the 5, since you want it to be only one decimal place. This way, you will have 14.5, your answer
Thank you sooo much
