### WHAT IS ADDITION?

Addition is the process of combining two or more numbers (called addends) to get a total sum.

For example, adding 3 apples and 5 apples gives you a total of 8 apples (3 + 5 = 8).

If you want to introduce addition to your children, you may give them some chocolates in their right hand and some more in their left. When you are done, ask him the total count and let him have his way to get the total number.

### THE FORMULA FOR ADDITION

Addition is not complex. You just have to add the numbers you have one after another to get the desired result.

Sum = Addend 1 + Addend 2 + ... + Addend n (n = Any number)

From this formula, it's clear that the sum is equal to the first addend plus the second addend, and so on, until all addends are included.

### HOW TO USE THE ADDITION CALCULATOR ONLINE

An additional calculator helps you when you are dealing with large or complex sums. Here's how to use one:

Step 1: Enter the addends you want to sum.

Step 2: Hit the "Enter" button or "=" sign on your screen

The sum of all your entered numbers will be displayed on the screen. Some calculators might also offer advanced features like adding multiple numbers. You can enter more than two addends at once, and the calculator will automatically calculate the total sum.
