15.-1. What is the sum of 65 and 87?

PROCESS.

65

87

152, Ans.

For convenience we write the numbers with units under units and tens under tens, and begin at the right to add. The sum of 7 units and 5 units is 12 units, which equal 1 ten and 2 units; we write the 2 units under the column of units, and add the 1 ten to the column of tens. The sum of 1 ten, 8 tens, and 6 tens is 15 tens, which equal 1 hundred and 5 tens; we write the 5 tens under the column of tens, and place the 1 hundred on the left in the place of hundreds.

2. What is the sum of 455, 789, and 347?

[blocks in formation]

In practice we name results only in adding; thus, we say 7, 16, 21; write 1 and carry 2.

Then 2, 6, 14, 19; write 9 and carry 1.

Then 1, 4, 11, 15; write 15.

PROOF.-Begin at the top and add downward; if the two results agree, the work is probably correct.
