addition adding numbers

It might help to draw the problem.

Here we have 4 hearts

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

underneath here we have 3 hearts

♥ ♥ ♥

adding means combine. So let's add the 4 hearts to the three hearts

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ + ♥ ♥ ♥= ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

4 plus 3 = 7

You can also do this on your hand

Hold up 4 fingers (let's use the index finger, middle finger, ring finger, and pinky finger)

These fingers represent the number 4.

Now, use your other hand to hold up three fingers (let's use the index finger, middle finger and ring finger.)

These fingers represent the number 3.

You should have 4 fingers up on one hand and 3 fingers up on the other hand.

Now, count all of the fingers you have up,

1,2,3,4,5,6,7

You have 7 fingers up.

so the answer is 7

4+3=7
