### Adding Any Two Numbers - Mathematics Shortcuts and Tricks

Here is mathematical trick to add any number without the help of pen/ pencil in few seconds. Shortcut tricks are very helpful for fast calculations in competitive exams as time allotted is too less for lengthy calculations. So shortcut tricks helps us to solve questions is very less time hence improving chances of getting good score and higher rank in merit.

• First split the number ( like we have to add two numbers 43 and 62, Now 43 = 40 + 3 or 62 =  60 + 2.
• Now first add numbers at numbers at ten's place than one's place. ( Here 60 + 40 = 100 and 2 + 3 = 5.)
• Now add these numbers. 100 + 5 = 105. This is our answer.

Follow examples below to understand it better:

Eg. 1:

29 + 73
Step -1 => 29 = 20 + 9, 73 = 70 + 3
Step -2 =>20 + 70 = 90, 9 + 3 =12.
Step -3 => 90 + 12 = 102.
Hence 29 + 73 = 102. (Ans)

Eg. 2:

136 + 221
Step -1 => 136 = 100 + 30 + 6, 221 = 200 + 20 + 1
Step -2 => 100 + 200 = 300, 30 + 20 = 50, 6 + 1 = 7
Step -3 => 300 + 50 + 7 = 357.
Hence 136 + 221 = 357. (Ans)

• 81 + 69 =
• 23 + 32
• 58 + 25
• 241 + 176 =
• 343 + 724
