Addition

Traditional method or column addition

Requires you to understand that the number such as `385` is in fact three 100’s eight 10’s and five 1’s.

Or           `300 + 80 + 5`

And this place value system is called the decimal system.

Number split into hundreds, tens, units, tenths etc 

Remember this is better than adding pounds shillings and pence.

adding pounds shillings and pence

NOTE:

`d` = pennies = `12` pennies in a shilling

`S` = shillings = `20` shillings in a pound

`£` = Pound = `240` pence `(12xx20=240)`

 

and `8d+7d+10d=25d` or `2` shillings and `1d`

and `4S+5S+3S` and `2S` carried over is `14` shillings
