Addition of whole numbers
Addition of two of more whole numbers
Addition is the process of finding the total of two or more numbers.
We first learn addition through counting:
But it is not necessary to draw the picture. You can say: 2 + 1 = 3
5 +7 = 12
132 + 335 = 467
12 + 15 + 8 = 27 + 8 = 35
142 + 265 + 146 = 407 + 146 = 553
Addition properties
If a, b and c are whole numbers
1. Associative property: (a+b)+c = a+ (b +c )
2. Commutative property: a + b = b + a
3. Addition property of zero: a+0 =0+ a = a
Add the following whole numbers :
