This Instructable will tell you simply how to add.

Step 1: Get an Equation

I choose the equation 12 + 38.

Step 2: Write Down the Equation

Now you must write down the equation. To do this write it vertically not horizontally.
12 + 38 Don't write it this way.
12
+ 38 Write the equation like this making sure the sign is on the left and the digits line up.

To add read the equation from right to left and top to bottom.
First add 2 and 8. That equals 10 so you must take 0 and put in underneath then take the one and put on top of the digit to the right, the 1. Now you must add the 1 you took from the 10 and the 1 in the 18. You should get 2 if you added it correctly. Now you must take the 2 and the 3 and add them together. You should end up with 5. Now read the final product left to right and you get 50.

Step 4: Congratulations

CONGRATULATIONS you just learned to add.
