step 1) subtract the numbers like normal so you'd do 97.2 - 16.04 = 81.16 ------------------------------------------------------- step 2) round the result from step 1 based on the least number of decimals in the initial problem so we take 81.16 and round it to one decimal place (because 97.2 has 1 number after the decimal) 81.16 rounds to 81.2
