# Addition of Whole Numbers

Addition of whole numbers is discussed in the following steps how to add large numbers:

**Step I:**

We arrange the given numbers in columns, ones under ones, tens under tens, hundred under hundreds and so on.

**Step II:**

We add the digits in each column taking the carry over, if any, to the next column the left, and adding it along with the digit in that column. We continue this process till we add the digits in all the columns.

Solved Examples on Addition of Whole Numbers:

**1.** Add 3507469 and 6641007.

**Solution:**

We arrange the given numbers in column and add as follows:

**Step 1:** Add ones place i.e. 9 + 7 = 16 which is equal to 1

ten + 6 ones

**Step 2:** Carry 1 ten to the tens column as shown.

**Step 3:** Add tens place i.e. 6 tens + 0 tens + 1 ten which is

equal to 7 tens.

**Step 4:** Add hundreds place i.e. 4 hundreds + 0 hundred which

is equal to 4 hundreds.

**Step 5:** Add thousands place i.e. 7 thousands + 1 thousand

which is equal to 8 thousands.

**Step 6:** Add ten thousands place i.e. 0 ten thousand + 4 ten

thousands which is equal to 4 ten thousands.

**Step 7:** Add hundred thousands place i.e. 5 hundred thousands

+ 6 hundred thousands which is equal to 1 million + 1 hundred thousand.

**Step 8:** Carry 1 million to the millions column as shown.

**Step 9:** Add millions place i.e. 3 millions + 6 millions + 1

million which is equal to 10 millions.

Therefore, the sum of given numbers= 10148476.

**2.** Add 4167499; 38014 and 3604587.

**Solution:**

We arrange the given numbers in column and add as follows:

**Step 1:** Add ones place i.e. 9 + 4 + 7 = 20 which is equal to

2 tens + 0 ones

**Step 2:** Carry 2 tens to the tens column as shown.

**Step 3:** Add tens place i.e. 9 tens + 1 ten + 8 tens + 2 tens

which is equal to 2 hundreds + 0 tens.

**Step 4:** Carry 2 hundreds to the hundreds column as shown.

**Step 5:** Add hundreds place i.e. 4 hundreds + 0 hundreds + 5

hundreds + 2 hundreds which is equal to 1 thousand + 1 hundred.

**Step 6:** Carry 1 thousand to the thousands column as shown.

**Step 7:** Add thousands place i.e. 7 thousands + 8 thousands +

4 thousands + 1 thousand which is equal to 2 ten thousands + 0 thousand.

**Step 8:** Carry 2 ten thousands to the ten thousands column as

shown.

**Step 9:** Add ten thousands place i.e. 6 ten thousands + 3 ten

thousands + 0 ten thousand + 2 ten thousands which is equal to 1 hundred

thousand + 1 ten thousand.

**Step 10:** Carry 1 hundred thousand to the hundred thousands

column as shown.

**Step 11:** Add hundred thousands place i.e. 1 hundred thousand

+ 6 hundred thousands + 1 hundred thousand which is equal to 8 hundred

thousands.

**Step 12:** Add millions i.e. 4 millions + 3 millions which is

equal to 7 millions.

Therefore, the sum of given numbers= 7810100.

**Note:** We can add 7-digit, 8-digit and 9-digit numbers in the same way as we added 5-digit and 6-digit numbers. While arranging the addends in columns we need to be careful.

Addition of numbers with more than five digits can be done in the same way as we discussed in the above examples.

We arrange the numbers one below the other in the place value columns. We start adding them one by one from the right most column and take the carry over to the next column, if required.

**3.** Add 44,71,214 and 31,27,510.

**Solution:**

** TL L TTh Th H T O**

4 4 7 1 2 1 4

+ __ 3 1 2 7 5 1 0 __

__ 7 5 9 8 7 2 4 __

Hence 44,71,214 + 31,27,510 = 75,98,724

**4.** Add 1,29,700; 50,81,298 and 10,29,19,510.

**Solution:**

** TC C TL L TTh Th H T O**

1 2 9 7 0 0

5 0 8 1 2 9 8

+ __ 1 0 2 9 1 9 5 1 0 __

__ 1 0 8 1 3 0 5 0 8 __

Hence 1,29,700 + 50,81,298 + 10,29,19,510 = 10,81,30,508.
