Adding 2-Digit Numbers

Here we will learn adding 2-digit numbers without regrouping and start working with easy numbers to get acquainted with the addition of two numbers.

We are going to start working with the basic addition of two-digits with everything arranged because this is what we will always do with bigger numbers in future.
