## Adding Big Numbers - Meet the Skill

The basic steps are: Add the digits at the ones place independent of other digits. Add the digits at the tens place and add carry forward generated at ones place if any. Similarly, we add other place value digits and add the carry forwards if any.

In long addition, you have to add together a number of digit numbers. This sounds confusing, and it might take a while to get the hang of. However, the good news is that it uses the organizational principle used to add single digits.

Every numerical addition that occurs is based on the principle that the total sum is not meant to change based on the numbers that are added. Moreover, the core value of the numbers is not affected when they are broken up into their component parts. By using these fundamental principles, there are numerous ways to attempt long addition sums.

How to Perform This Operation

Start by Writing the Digits in a Vertical Column

Regardless of whether you have two digits or more that you need to add, the long addition method is the way to go. This is also known as the traditional method. With the help of this method, you can add numbers using single digits and units of tens and hundreds. You can accomplish this by starting your sums from right to left.

For example, the following numbers need to be added (383, 421, 133)

3|8|3
4|2|1
1|3|3

You start by adding the right-side numbers and move on to the left.

A line needs to be drawn underneath the numbers. This stands for the equal sign in linear math. Below this line, you will have to write your final sum. Remember to start by adding the right-side numbers and move on to the left.

You need to place each number properly using this method. Each number needs to be placed directly below the number above it. This means that 3, 1, and 3 need to be placed in their respective columns as you divide them into single digits. Then, you move on to 8, 2, and 3, as these are units of tens, and then so on.

If you are starting out, you can use graph paper to ensure that your lines are kept straight. Beginners to long addition can also use templates of horizontal rows and vertical columns to get into the habit of lining their numbers properly.

All you have to do is add the numbers on your right and write their sum underneath the specific column. This means that you have to add 3, 1, and 3 and write their sum below the line.

If you want, you can also add the numbers individually. For example, 3 + 1= 4. This sum, 4 needs to be added to 3, making the sum 7. Continue adding from right to left until all your numbers have been added.

Use the same sequence to continue till all the numbers in all the columns have been added. You can use long addition with two columns or even six.

You can also use this column to add two large numbers or as many large numbers as you want.

Carry the Extra Digit

When you are using long addition, and the sum is more than a digit, the extra digit must be carried. The additional number must be added to the next column on the left.

To carry the extra digit, write a small number on your left column so that you can show your work and also carry the extra digit.

We recommend using different colors to carry the extra digit, so you do not get confused between the numbers. Getting mixed up is easy, especially when learning how to work with long addition.

Long addition can be tough, but with a little practice and mindfulness, you can easily get the hang of it.
