• What does 48,029+233,930=?
• Here's a method you would probably understand more for example do this with any big numbers you have that you have to add

48,029
+233,930
=281,959

Basiclly always just add the top and bottom number and if you get a number bigger than 10 then carry it onto the next one for example if i had 488 + 434 at first i would add the ones place first and get 12 and so the i would put a 2 in the ones place and carry the 1 so the 1 would be on top on the 8 in the tens place and then we basically add that 1 onto the addition of 8 + 4 and the it would turn into 9 + 4 because were adding the 1
• im not use to adding big number like 769,235 + 896,230
• WHY does he draw circles at .
• Sal draws circles to show he is adding the 2 quantities. Often when doing multidigit addition people get messed up so drawing circles eliminates room for error especially in beginners.
• Can someone please explain this to me? I'm not sure what it is talking about so can you answer my question pls?Plus the video does not make sense to me! Many people don't have a good chance of getting into the same situation as the others are you get where I'm going on with? Thank you if you answered my questions bye-bye have a nice day 💖💌💬

• Could you possibly use another method than the standard method? I didn't understand why he only showed us standard.
• you can use something other than standard. sal was just showing us that,
incase that was better
• how you put the bigger number on top
• Re-arrange the numbers. For example, 1,000 + 500. You re-arrange it to be stacked. With the 1,000 on top. Then you add, Getting you 1500, or 1,500.
