The concept of addition helps us to find the total number of objects. Two objects or numbers are said to be added to obtain a larger number called the SUM.

There are many ways to add numbers or objects.

We can use our fingers to perform addition when the numbers that we need to add are less than or equal to 5.
For example, to add 5 and 3 you can open all 5 fingers in one hand and three fingers in the other hand. The sum of 5 and 3 shows the total number of fingers opened on both the hands, so, 5 + 3 = 8.
