The addition is the mathematical composition operation that consists of combining, joining or adding two or more numbers to obtain a final or total quantity.

In the additive expression, four fundamental properties are always satisfied:

1) Commutative property:

A modification in the order of its elements (addends) will not modify the result; for example: 3 + 2 = 2 + 3

2) Associative property:

When three or more numbers are added, the order of the addends does not influence the result; for example: 4 + (2 + 1) = (4 + 2) + 1

3) Property of the neutral element (or identity element):

Any number added to the number zero (0) will result in the same number; for example: 5 + 0 = 5

4) Distributive property (combines multiplication and addition):

The result of the sum of two numbers (A and B) multiplied by a third number (C) will be equivalent to the sum of their products (A x C + B x C); for example: 2 x (4 + 3) = 2 x 4 + 2 x 3

What are the "addends" and the "result" in a sum?

In the next lesson we will explain to you which are the terms or elements of any sum (addends and result) as well as the meaning of their mathematical symbols "+" and "= ".

- Addends: They represent each of the figures or numbers that we are going to add, that is, they correspond to the sets that we will join, combine and / or group.

- Result or Sum: Symbolizes the figure or number resulting from the sum. It corresponds to the unique set formed by joining, combining and / or grouping the quantities of the addends.

How to build the algorithm of a vertical sum?

Next you will learn to construct vertical sums by placing the symbols "+" and "=" and each of their terms (addends and result) in the corresponding place, practicing with the different printable educational worksheets that we have developed for whole numbers from 0 to 100,000.

Remember, with the 4-digit and 5-digit additions you must always align, according to their place value, the ones (1s), the tens (10s), the hundreds (100s), the thousands (1,000s) and the ten thousands (10,000s) before solving any addition operations.
