This module is from Fundamentals of Mathematics by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. This module discusses how to add whole numbers. By the end of this module, students should be able to understand the addition process, add whole numbers, and use the calculator to add one whole number to another.

## Section overview

• Addition Visualized on the Number Line
• Calculators

Suppose we have two collections of objects that we combine together to form a third collection. For example,

We are combining a collection of four objects with a collection of three objects to obtain a collection of seven objects.

The process of combining two or more objects (real or intuitive) to form a third, the total, is called addition .

In addition, the numbers being added are called addends or terms , and the total is called the sum . The plus symbol (+) is used to indicate addition, and the equal symbol (=) is used to represent the word "equal." For example, $4+3=7$ means "four added to three equals seven."

## Addition visualized on the number line

Addition is easily visualized on the number line. Let's visualize the addition of 4 and 3 using the number line.

To find $4+3$ ,

1. Start at 0.
2. Move to the right 4 units. We are now located at 4.
3. From 4, move to the right 3 units. We are now located at 7.

Thus, $4+3=7$ .

We'll study the process of addition by considering the sum of 25 and 43.

$\begin{array}{cc}\begin{array}{c}\hfill 25\\ \hfill \underline{+43}\end{array}& \text{means}\end{array}$

We write this as 68.

We can suggest the following procedure for adding whole numbers using this example.

## The process of adding whole numbers

The process:

1. Write the numbers vertically, placing corresponding positions in the same column.

$\begin{array}{c}\hfill 25\\ \hfill \underline{+43}\end{array}$

2. Add the digits in each column. Start at the right (in the ones position) and move to the left, placing the sum at the bottom.

$\begin{array}{c}\hfill 25\\ \hfill \underline{+43}\\ \hfill 68\end{array}$

Confusion and incorrect sums can occur when the numbers are not aligned in columns properly. Avoid writing such additions as
$\begin{array}{c}25\hfill \\ \hfill \underline{+43}\end{array}$
$\begin{array}{c}\hfill \phantom{\rule{16px}{0ex}}25\\ \underline{+43\phantom{\rule{8px}{0ex}}}\hfill \end{array}$

## Sample set a

$\begin{array}{c}\hfill 276\\ \hfill \underline{+103}\\ \hfill 379\end{array}\phantom{\rule{16px}{0ex}}\begin{array}{}6+3=9\text{.}\\ 7+0=7\text{.}\\ 2+1=3\text{.}\end{array}$

$\begin{array}{c}\hfill 1459\\ \hfill \underline{+130}\\ \hfill 1589\end{array}\phantom{\rule{16px}{0ex}}\begin{array}{}9+0=9\text{.}\\ 5+3=8\text{.}\\ 4+1=5\text{.}\\ 1+0=1\text{.}\end{array}$

In each of these examples, each individual sum does not exceed 9. We will examine individual sums that exceed 9 in the next section.

## Practice set a

Perform each addition. Show the expanded form in problems 1 and 2.

88

5,527

267,166

It often happens in addition that the sum of the digits in a column will exceed 9. This happens when we add 18 and 34. We show this in expanded form as follows.

Notice that when we add the 8 ones to the 4 ones we get 12 ones. We then convert the 12 ones to 1 ten and 2 ones. In vertical addition, we show this conversion by carrying the ten to the tens column. We write a 1 at the top of the tens column to indicate the carry. This same example is shown in a shorter form as follows:

$8+4=12$ Write 2, carry 1 ten to the top of the next column to the left.

## Sample set b

Perform the following additions. Use the process of carrying when needed.

Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
what king of growth are you checking .?
Renato
What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?
Kyle
biomolecules are e building blocks of every organics and inorganic materials.
Joe
anyone know any internet site where one can find nanotechnology papers?
research.net
kanaga
sciencedirect big data base
Ernesto
Introduction about quantum dots in nanotechnology
what does nano mean?
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
Bharti
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?
absolutely yes
Daniel
how to know photocatalytic properties of tio2 nanoparticles...what to do now
it is a goid question and i want to know the answer as well
Maciej

for teaching engĺish at school how nano technology help us
Anassong
Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
NANO
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
Virgil
is Bucky paper clear?
CYNTHIA
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
NANO
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
s.
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
SUYASH
What is lattice structure?
of graphene you mean?
Ebrahim
or in general
Ebrahim
