Addition is used to add, join, combine or bringing together two or more values. The '+' sign is used  to represent the Operations of Addition. Addition can be done by forward counting. If we need to add 6 + 2, then simply we count forward 2 from 6 i.e, 7, 8. Then the required result 6 + 2 is 8.

While adding bigger digits i.e. if 235 and 277, the forward counting method is not practically feasible. In such cases we go for column addition method. The column addition method can be explained by some examples:

Example 1:

Example 2:

## Use column method to add the following digits 4 2 + 9 9 -------- ?

Step 1: Add the first column 9+2 = 11. Write 1 and other 1 will become carry for the next column.

Step 2: Add the second column including carry 9+4 = 13. Write it down.

4 2
+ 9 9
--------

14 1

## Use column method to add 4 2 and 8 8?

Step 1: Add the first column 2+8 = 10. Write it down.

Step 2: Add the second column including carry 4+8 = 12. Write it down. The answer is 120.

4 2
+ 8 8

130

## Calculate the sum 6 3, 3 2 and 5 using column addition method?

Step 1: Add the digit of first column 3+2+5 = 10. Write down 0 and other 1 will become carry.

Step 2: Add the digits of the second column with carry 6+3+1 = 10. Write it down.

6 3
3 2
+    5

100

## Use the column method to add the following digits 5, 55 and 355?

Step 1: Add the first column 5+5+5 = 15. Write down 5 and one will become carry and add in the next column.
Step 2: Add the digits of the second column including carry 5+5+1 = 11. Write down 1 and 1 will become carry.
Step 3: Add the digits of the third column with carry 3+1 = 4. Write it down.

5 5
+ 3 5 5

4 1 5

Thus, on performing Column Addition on 5, 55 and 355 we get 415.

## Calculate the sum 51, 91 and 5 using column addition method?

Step 1: Add the digits of first column 1+1+5 = 7. Write down 7.

Step 2: Add the digits of the second column with carry 5+9 = 14. Write it down.

## Find out the sum of the following 226, 926 and 365?

Step 1: Add the digits of the first column 6+6+5 = 17. Write down 7 and 1 will become carry and add to the next column.

Step 2: Add the digits of the second column 2+2+6 = 10. After adding the carry digit it will become 11. Write down 1 and other 1 will become carry.

Step 3: Add the digits of the last column 2+9+3 = 14. After adding carry it will become 15. Write it down.

## Find out the sum of digits 2231, 596, and 5862?

Step 1: Add the digits of first column 1+6+2 = 9. Write it down.

Step 2: Now add the second column 3+9+6 = 18. Write down 8 and 1 will be the carry.

Step 3: The third column have the digits 2+5+8 = 15. With the carry the total is 16. Write down 6 and 1 will move to the next column.

Step 4: Add the last column’s digits including carry it will be 2+5+1 = 8. Write it down.

2 2 3 1

8 6 8 9

Step 1: Add first digit column, addition is one. Write 1. there is no carry.

Step 2: Add second digit column, addition is 9+9+9 = 27. Write 7 and 2 is carry. Write it at above the next column.

Step 3: Add third digit column, addition is 5+5+3 = 13. Including carry its addition is 15. Write it down.

5 9 0
5 9 0
+   3 9 1

1 5 7 1

So, the answer is 1 5 7 0.

## Find out the sum of the given numbers 2488, 3676, and 3387?

Step 1: add the first column digits; the addition is 8+6+7 = 21. Write 1 and 2 is the carry, mark 2 at the above side of the second column.

Step 2: now add the second column digits 8+7+8. The total is which is 23. Add the carry 2 also  now it is 25. Write 5 and 2 will be the carry so mark it at the next column above.

Step 3: add the all digits of third column only. With carry the addition is 4+6+3+2 = 15. Write 5 and 1 is the carry; note it at the above of the next column.

Step 4: this is the last column. Add all the digits of fourth column. Addition is 2+3+3+1 =  9 including carry. Thus the total answer is 9551.

## Find out the sum of the given digits 4591, 3763, and 1583?

Step 1: Add the first column digits; the addition is 1+3+3 = 7. Write it down.

Step 2: Now add the second column digits. The total is which 9+6+8 = 23 is. Write 3 and 2 will be the carry so mark it above of the next column.

Step 3: Add the all digits of third column only. With carry the addition is 5+7+5+2 = 19. Write 9 and 1 is the carry, note it at the above of the next column.

Step 4: This is the last column. Add all the digits of fourth column. Addition is 4+3+1 = 9 including 1 carry.
