We will learn adding 4digit numbers with regrouping.
Addition of 4digit numbers can be done in the same way as we do addition of smaller numbers. We first arrange the numbers one below the other in place value columns and then we start adding from the ones place and regroup, if required as shown in the following examples.
Solved Examples on Adding 4digit Numbers with Regrouping:
1. Add 6196 and 3025.
Solution:
Step I: Add the ones. 6 + 5 = 11 ones = 1 ten and 1 one. Write 1 in ones column and carry 1 to the tens column. Step II: Add the tens. 9 + 2 + 1 (carry over) = 12 tens. 12 tens = 1 hundreds and 2 tens. Write 2 in tens column and carry 1 to the hundreds column. Step III: Add the hundreds. 1 + 0 + 1 (carry over) = 2 hundreds. Write 2 in the hundreds column. Step IV: Add the thousands. 6 + 3 = 9 thousands. Write 9 in the thousands column. 
Hence, 6196 + 3025 = 9221 
2. Add 3018, 5123 and 1762.
Solution:
Step I: Add the ones. 8 + 3 + 2 = 13 ones = 1 ten and 3 one. Write 3 in ones column and carry 1 to the tens column. Step II: Add the tens. 1 + 2 + 6 + 1 (carry over) = 10 tens. 10 tens = 1 hundreds and 0 tens. Write 0 in tens column and carry 1 to the hundreds column. Step III: Add the hundreds. 0 + 1 + 7 + 1 (carry over) = 9 hundreds. Write 9 in the hundreds column. Step IV: Add the thousands. 3 + 5 + 1 = 9 thousands. Write 9 in the thousands column. 
Hence, 3018 + 5123 + 1762 = 9903 
3. Add 5,386 and 3,927.

Step II: Adding ones, we have:
6 ones + 7 ones = 13 ones = 1 ten + 3 ones.
Carry over 1 to tens column and write 3 under ones column.

Step III: Adding tens, we have:
1 ten (carried) + 8 tens + 2 tens = 11 tens = 1 hundred + 1 ten.
Carry over 1 to hundreds column and write 1 under tens column.

Step IV: Adding hundreds, we have:
1 hundred (carried) + 3 hundreds + 9 hundreds = 13 hundreds
= 1 thousand + 3 hundreds.
Carry over 1 to thousands column and write 3 under hundreds column.

Step V: Adding thousands, we have
1 thousand (carried) + 5 thousands + 3 thousands = 9 thousands

Hence, 5,386 + 3,927 = 9,313 (Nine thousand three hundred thirteen).
