Addition to 20

Addition in column

We can do addition in mind. However, there are times when it becomes too cumbersome. In such a situation, we reach for a calculator or addition in column. In mathematics lessons, we most often use the second solution and add in column. Thanks to this possibility, we can freely add many numbers during one operation.

When performing calculations in column, it is important to write the numbers properly so that the ones are under the ones, the tens are under the tens, and the hundreds are under the hundreds, etc. The addition in column on a piece of paper is carried out from right to left, adding first ones, then tens, then hundreds, etc. Regrouping numbers if necessary.

However, writing the numbers in a column, not in a line, can also be facilitated by mental addition, from left to right, i.e. from the largest values to the smallest. For example, first hundreds, then tens, finally ones.
