Explanation:

 

 

Addition

 

Addition is a mathematical operation that represents combining collections of objects together into a larger collection. It is signified by the plus sign (+). For example, in the picture on the right, there are 3 + 2 apples-meaning three apples and two other apples-which is the same as five apples. Therefore, 3 + 2 = 5 (Our solved example in mathguru.com uses this concept)

Besides counting fruits, addition can also represent combining other physical and abstract quantities using different kinds of numbers: negative numbers, fractions, irrational numbers, vectors, decimals and more.


 

3 + 2 = 5 with apples
