The addition is a **mathematical operation**. It is one of the simplest **numerical tasks**. The addition is basic in numerical operations. **Addition symbol** is + (plus). Addition operation performs between two or more numbers. The addition is used in every numerical calculation.

Addition operation is simple and everyone knows how to perform addition, I will tell you how to perform addition fast and accurate with **addition tricks**. Here I will tell you **shortcut methods** for addition. These are useful for competitive exams especially **simplification tricks** for bank exams.

**Next tutorial** I will tell you **shortcuts** for subtraction multiplication and division.

Let’s see,

### Trick 1:

Here is a trick that is for near value of 10, 100, 1000, 10000 etc. Just do mind calculation for **near value of numbers**. It is easy, instead of a regular method. It is also for the **time-saving trick**.

**Example**: 136+89

136+89 ∴ 89 is near value of 90 136+90-1 ∴ add 90 and 136 226-1 ∴ subtract 225

### Trick 2:

This trick is useful for **long length calculations**. It is simple when you add a decimal and natural numbers separately.

**Example**: 15.5+8.25

15.5+8.25 ∴ Separate natural and decimal numbers 15+8+.5+0.25 ∴ Add decimal numbers 15+8+0.75 ∴ Add natural 23+0.75 ∴ Add total 23.75

### Trick 3:

When you see same number and **increasing series**, follow this trick. It is for all same and increasing order numbers. Just **take a common number** and multiply. This type of addition tricks available in **Vedic maths**. This type addition tricks for large numbers.

**Example**: 6+66+666+6666+66666

6+66+666+6666+66666 ∴ take 6 common 6(1+11+111+1111+11111) ∴ Add increasing 1’s, see below result 6(12345) ∴ multiply number with 6 74070

### Trick 4:

It is similar to trick 3. The only **difference is numbers series** is reverse when you add. Just add and multiply with a common number.

**Example**: 0.8+0.88+0.888+0.8888

0.8+0.88+0.888+0.8888 ∴ Take 8 common 8(0.1+0.11+0.111+0.1111) ∴ Add increasing decimal 1’s 8(0.4321) ∴ multiply 8 with that decimal 3.4568

### Trick 5:

This trick makes **calculations simpler**. First, add unit’s digit then add the total. These are **speed addition tricks**.

**Example**: 17 + 6.

17 + 6. ∴ Separate tens and units. 10+7+6 ∴ Add units 10+11 ∴ Add total 23

### Trick 6:

The addition operation perform between separated suitable digits. **Separation of digits** done for suitable other numbers.

**Example**: 74+8

74+8 ∴ Separate unit’s digit suitable for other numbers 74+6+2 ∴ Add suitable number 80+2 ∴ Add total 82

### Trick 7:

Separation makes **calculation simpler**. So separate possible numbers then add.

**Example**: 662+579

662+579 ∴ Separate hundreds and tens 600+62+500+79 ∴ Add hundreds 1100+62+79 ∴ Add tens 1100+ 141 ∴ Add total 1241

### Trick 8:

If you found suitable **units digit numbers**, add those numbers first then other numbers.

**Example**: 7 + 8 + 3 + 2 + 5

7 + 8 + 3 + 2 + 5 ∴ Add suitable numbers 10+8+2+5 ∴ Add suitable numbers 10+10+5 ∴ Add suitable numbers 20+5 ∴ Add total 25

### Trick 9:

If you don’t know additions what will you do? **Counting numbers**, am I right? So add numbers 7+2 instead of 2+7. It is also useful for counting numbers.

**Example**: 2 + 7

2 + 7 ∴ Add number 7+2 7+2 ∴ Add total 9
