**Addition**

**Addition** is the process of combining two or more numbers to get a new total. It is usually denoted by the + symbol (plus sign).

Examples:

- If we add 5 and 3, we get 8.

5 + 3 = 8

- When we add 4, 7, and 2, we get 13.

4 + 7 + 2 = 13

- If we add 10, 6, 1, and 9, we get 26.

10 + 6 + 1 + 9 = 26
