• First line up the numbers as per the place value (all the tens and the units lined up vertically). Put a line under the last number.
• ```30
40
```
• Add the ones' place numbers. (0 + 0 = 0). Write the zero in the ones' place column.
• ```30
40
0
```
• Add the tens' place digits (3 + 4 = 7) and write the answer below the line in the tens' place column.
• ```30
40
70```

How to add two two-digit numbers (for example 54 + 42).
• First line up the numbers as per the place value (all the tens and the units lined up vertically). Put a line under the last number.
• ```54
42
```
• Add the numbers in the ones' place digits (4 + 2 = 6).
• ```54
42
6
```
• Add the the tens' place digits(5 + 4 = 9) and write the answer below the line in tens' place column.
• ```54
42
96```

Adding three numbers (for example 5 + 3 + 9) involves two steps.

• First line up the numbers as per the place value (all the tens and the units lined up vertically). Put a line under the last number.
• Add the first two digits. (5 + 3 = 8). Hold '8' in your mind.
• Add the other digit to this sum. (8 + 9 = 17).

How to add three-digit numbers (for example 400 + 300).

• First line up the numbers as per the place value (all the hundreds,tens and the ones lined up vertically). Put a line under the last number.
• ```400
300
```
• Add the numbers in the ones' place digits. (0 + 0 = 0) and write the answer below the line in the ones' place column.
• ```
400
300
0
```
• Add the tens' place numbers (0 + 0 = 0) and place the answer below the line and to the tens' place column
• ``` 400
300
00```
• Add the digits in the hundreds' place column (4+ 3 = 7) and write the answer below the line in the hundreds' place column.
• ```  400

Addition facts for 0, 1 and 2

The addition facts for 0, 1 and 2 are in the following table.

 ZERO 0+0=0 0+1=1 0+2=2 0+3=3 0+4=4 ONE 1+1=2 1+2=3 1+3=4 1+4=5 1+5=6 TWO 2+2=4 2+3=5 2+4=6 2+5=7 2+6=8

When 0 is added to a second digit the answer is the second digit. (e.g. 0 + 6 = 6)

Adding 1 to any number is like counting up by 1.

Adding 2 to any number is like counting up by 2.

How to mentally add two two-digit numbers.

• First add the digits in the ones' place(3 + 4)=7.
• Add digits in the tens' place(7 + 3) = 10.
• If the sum of ones's place numbers is single digit number then write the answer 107.

• First add the digits in the ones' place(5 + 7)=12
• Add digits in the tens' place(6 + 8)=14
• If the sum of ones's place numbers is two-digit number then do the following
• Decrease the sum of ones's place by 10(12-10= 2)
• Increase the sum of tens' place by 1(14 + 1=15)
• Write the sums of tens and ones' place together to get the answer of 152

Adding Two-Digit Numbers with Paper and Pencil

How to add two two-digit numbers (for example 35 + 78) with paper and pencil.

• First line up the numbers as per the place value (all the tens and the units lined up vertically). Put a line under the last number.
• ```35
78
```
• Add the numbers in the ones' place. (5 + 8 = 13). This sum is a two-digit number so write 1 above the tens' place column and write the 3 below the line in the ones' place column.
• ```1
35
78
3
```
• Add the digits in the tens' place column (1 + 3 + 7 = 11) and write the answer below the line in the tens' place column.
• ``` 1
35
78
113```
