We add to put things together.

When we count one forward from a number we get one more than that number. One more than number 3 is number 4. Counting forward means addition. The answer we get after adding numbers is called the sum.

 Look at the picture.How many children are standing near the board?Oh! Yes 3 children are standing near the board.

Thus, we can say 3 and 2 together make 5.

We write 3 + 2 = 5.

We read it as 'Three plus Two is equal to Five'.

+ stands for plus and = stands for equal to.

Plus means counting together.
