The word addition is derived from a Latin word “additio”, which was used by an Italian mathematician, Leonardo Pisano Fibonacci and the sign of addition that is the “+” symbol first appeared in print in the year 1489 by Johann Widman. In modern mathematics, addition means a mathematical process that deals with putting things together. Whenever, you need to represent addition of certain things in a written form, use the “+” symbol. Addition is primarily a binary operation that deals with two objects simultaneously to give a result in another element of the same set.

“Terms” in addition

“Terms” in addition are the numbers or the objects that are added. They are also called the “addends” or the “summands”. The first number or the object that you add is called the “augend.” However, the term is no more in use during the present times due to the symmetry of addition.


As far as units of addition are concerned, the first and foremost thing you should know is physical quantities of common units should be added. For instance, if you want to add 2 meters to 4 centimeters then it is better to convert either of the two quantities into a common unit. However, adding 8 meters to 4 square meters won’t yield any result as they are incomparable with each other.

Features of addition

Addition is truly one of the simplest numerical tasks in mathematics. Addition like 1+1 are so simple that even kids can perform it with ease. To help them further, there are various visual representations of addition as well. The primary stage of addition includes single digit addition in the decimal system. As children grow up, they learn how to handle tougher additions. Moreover, addition is used to solve numerous problems in physical science as well.
