In this lesson, students solve measurement word problems involving addition. (For example, "An apple orchard sold 140.5 kilograms of apples in the morning. The orchard sold 15.85 kilograms more apples in the afternoon than in the morning. How many total kilograms of apples were sold that day?") They convert decimals to fraction form, solve the problem, and write a statement using the decimal form of the solution.
