Basics on the topic Adding Larger Numbers — Let's Practice!
We're diving into the world of adding large numbers. These exercises require us to use addition to find our answers. As we embark on this mathematical journey, remember that adding large numbers is like piecing together a puzzle, and you're the mathematician!
What Are Large Number Addition Problems?
Large number addition problems ask us to add multidigit numbers, sometimes involving carrying over to the next place value.
Here are the steps to tackle a large number addition problem:
Step #  Action 

1  Identify the relevant numbers. 
2  Add the numbers starting from the rightmost digit (ones place). 
3  Carry over any extra value to the next place value if necessary. 
4  Write down the sum for each place value. 
5  Check your answer to ensure it makes sense with the problem. 
Let's practice understanding large number addition problems with a couple of exercises.
Solving Large Number Addition Problems – Examples
Example 1:
Add 4,126 and 5,862.
Steps to Solve the Problem:
Step #  Action  Equation 

1  Write the numbers aligning by place value.  
2  Add the ones place: 6 + 2  $$ 6 + 2 = 8 $$ 
3  Add the tens place: 2 + 6  $$ 2 + 6 = 8 $$ 
4  Add the hundreds place: 1 + 8  $$ 1 + 8 = 9 $$ 
5  Add the thousands place: 4 + 5  $$ 4 + 5 = 9 $$ 
The sum is 9,988.
Example 2:
Add 3,026 and 2,669.
Steps to Solve the Problem:
Step #  Action  Equation 

1  Write the numbers aligning by place value.  
2  Add the ones place: 6 + 9 (carry over 1)  $$ 6 + 9 = 15 $$ 
3  Add the tens place: 2 + 6 + 1  $$ 2 + 6 + 1 = 9 $$ 
4  Add the hundreds place: 0 + 6  $$ 0 + 6 = 6 $$ 
5  Add the thousands place: 3 + 2  $$ 3 + 2 = 5 $$ 
The sum is 5,695.
Example 3:
Add 7,559 and 8,529.
Steps to Solve the Problem:
Step #  Action  Equation 

1  Write the numbers aligning by place value.  
2  Add the ones place: 9 + 9 (carry over 1)  $$ 9 + 9 = 18 $$ 
3  Add the tens place: 5 + 2 + 1  $$ 5 + 2 + 1 = 8 $$ 
4  Add the hundreds place: 5 + 5 (carry over 1)  $$ 5 + 5 = 10 $$ 
5  Add the thousands place: 7 + 8 + 1  $$ 7 + 8 + 1 = 16 $$ 
The sum is 16,088.

Add these three digit numbers together.
HintsRemember, add the ones place first, then the tens place, then the hundreds place, and lastly, the thousands place.
There is no regrouping in this problem.
SolutionAdding the ones place: 6 + 1, which is 7.
Adding the tens place: 70 + 0, which is 70.
Adding the hundreds place: 400 + 100, which is 500.
Adding the thousands place: 3,000 + 6,000, which is 9,000.
These numbers together are: 9,577.

Add the three digit numbers with regrouping.
HintsWe add the ones place first. 7 + 4 = 11. 11 needs to be regrouped into the tens place.
Look at how to regroup 11. There is one ten (11), and one one (11). Remember to add this regrouped ten into the tens place.
Remember to add the comma after the thousands place. Example: six thousand two hundred fortyone would be: 6,241.
SolutionAdd the ones place: 7 + 4 = 11. Regroup the 11 to one ten, and one one. The ones place is now 1.
Add the tens place: 40 + 10, + the 10 we carried. 40 + 10 + 10 = 60.
Add the hundreds place: 300 + 0 = 300.
Add the thousands place: 4,000 + 3,000 = 7,000.
The number is 7,361.

Regroup as needed to add the numbers.
HintsRemember to carry the 1 to the top of the next place value when regrouping.
Add the ones place first, then add the tens place. Regroup as needed.
Don't forget to add the comma after the thousands place.
Example: 20,567.
SolutionAdd the ones place: 4 + 1 = 5.
Add the tens place: 40 + 60 = 100. We regroup 1 hundred to the hundreds place. The tens place is left with 0.
Add the hundreds place: 100 (regrouped) + 700 + 500 = 1,300. We regroup 1 1,000 to the thousands place. The hundreds place is left with 300.
Add the thousands place: 1,000 (regrouped) + 9,000 + 6,000 = 16,000.
The sum of the numbers is: 16,305.

Add the two numbers by regrouping.
HintsRemember to start with the ones place and carry the 1 to the top of the next place value when regrouping.
Don't forget to add the comma (,) after the thousands place.
SolutionAdd the ones place: 1 + 1= 2.
Add the tens place: 70 + 80 = 150. Regroup the 100, the tens place is left with 50.
Add the hundreds place: 100 (regrouped) + 400 + 500 = 1,000. Regroup the 1,000 to the thousands place, the hundreds place is left with 0.
Add the thousands place: 1,000 (regrouped) + 20,000 + 3,000 = 24,000.
The number is 24,052.

Add the large numbers.
HintsRemember, start adding from the ones place.
If there is no regrouping, continue adding the tens place, hundreds place, and thousands place.
SolutionAdd the ones place: 3 + 3 = 6.
Add the tens place: 90 + 0 = 90.
Add the hundreds place: 500 + 300 = 800.
Add the thousands place: 8,000 + 4,000 = 12,000.
The total is 12,896.

Add the numbers by regrouping.
HintsRemember to start with the ones place, and carry the 1 to the top of the next place value when regrouping.
Remember, add the comma (,) after the thousands place.
Example: 75,230.
SolutionAdd the ones place: 9 + 9 = 18. Regroup the 10 to the tens place, the ones place is left with 8.
Add the tens place: 10 (regrouped) + 30 + 70 = 110. Regroup the 100 to the hundreds place, the tens place is left with 10.
Add the hundreds place: 100 (regrouped) + 900 + 500 = 1,500. Regroup the 1,000 to the thousands place, the hundreds place is left with 500.
Add the thousands place: 1,000 (regrouped) + 10,000 + 3,000 = 14,000.
The number is 14,518.
