Sara went grocery shopping and bought some cheese for 5 237
piastres and a detergent for 4 724 piastres. What did her

Add to find the total.
To add numbers, always start by adding the units digits, then the tens digits, then the hundreds digits, and so on.
Rename 11 units as 1 ten and 1 unit.
So, the total comes to piastres.
