Find the result of the following:
4,376 plus 5,213.
In this question, we have to add
together our two four-digit numbers. And we have to use the standard
written method or column addition. Let’s start by adding the ones. Six plus three gives us nine
ones. Seven 10s plus one 10 gives us a
total of eight 10s. We’ve got three 100s, and we need
to add two. And we know that three plus two is
five, so we’ve got five 100s. Finally, we need to add the
thousands. We know that four plus five is
nine, so we’ve got a total of nine 1,000s.
4,376 plus 5,213 is 9,589. We found the result using the
standard written method. First we add the ones, then the
tens, then the hundreds, and finally the thousands.
