In this post we will try to learn addition of whole numbers using basic addition techniques.

In order to learn this concept you should have basic idea of addition and place values of numbers.

We will learn the concept with the help of examples. First we will solve some easy questions then will move to the advance problems.

Example 01

Solution
Do the following step to solve the above addition

(a) Finding Place Values

(b) Vertical Arrangement
Arrange both the numbers column by column such that, ones and ones are in same column, Tens and Tens are in same column and so on….

Here are the complete addition steps:

Step 01:
⟹ 2 + 9 = 11
We will write 1 in the Ones column and 1 is carryover to Tens place

Step 02
⟹ 3 + 3 + 1 = 7

Step 03
⟹ 5 + 7 = 12 (1 Thousands and 2 Hundreds)
We will write 2 in Hundreds column and 1 is carryover

Step 04
⟹ 1 + 7 = 8

Hence 8271 is the final answer

This is how basic addition of whole numbers work.

Lets move on to solve some other examples.

Example 02

Solution
Do the following steps:

(a) Find place values

(b) Vertical Arrangement
Arrange the number in column such that same place value numbers are in the same line

Add the numbers by place value starting from right side.
Do the following steps:

Step 01
Add the number in “Ones” column
0 + 7 = 7

Step 02:
Add the number in Tens column
1 + 4 = 5

Step 03:
Add numbers in Hundreds (H) Columns
9 + 2 = 11

We will write 1 in the hundred place and the other 1 will be carry over to thousandth place (shown in Green Color)

Step 04
Add the digits in Thousands (T) Place
1+ 4 + 3 = 8

Step 05
Add the digits in Ten Thousand (TT) Place
1+ 4 = 5

Step 06
Add the digits in Hundred Thousand (HT) Place
0+ 5 = 5

Step 07
Add the digits in Million (M) place

Hence, 858157 is the solution of the given addition

Example 03

Solution

(a) Find Place Values

(b) Vertical Arrangement
Arrange the numbers vertically such that numbers with same place value lie in the same line

Start adding numbers from the right end

Step 01
⟹ 0 + 5 = 5

Step 02
6 + 2 = 8

Step 03
4 + 2 = 6

Step 04
3 + 6 = 9

Step 05
7 + 4 = 11

Write 1 in Ten Thousands column and 1 is carryover to Hundred Thousand column

Step 06
1 + 5 + 7 = 13

Write 3 in Hundred Thousands column and 1 is carryover to Million column

Step 07
1 + 2 = 3

Hence 319685 is the right answer

Lets move on to solve 3 digit whole numbers

Example 04

Solution

(a) Finding Place Values

(b) Vertical Arrangement
Arrange all the numbers vertically such that digits with same place value lies on same line

Start adding the number from right end

Step 01:
5 + 1 + 6 = 12

We write 2 on the Ones place and carry the digit 1 over Tens place

Step 02:
1 + 6 + 5 + 8 = 20

We write 0 on Tens place and digit 2 is carried over to Hundreds place

Step 03
2 + 3 + 2 + 9 = 16

Write 6 in Hundreds place and 1 is carried over to thousands place

Step 04
1 + 3 + 4 = 8

Step 05
Add numbers in “Ten Thousands” Place
7 + 5 = 12

we put digit 2 in Ten Thousand place and digit 1 is carry over to Hundred Thousands Place

Step 06
Add numbers in “Hundred Thousands Place”
1+ 9 + 6 = 16

Digit 6 is placed in hundred thousand place and 1 is carried over to Millionth place

Step 07
6 + 1 = 7
