In real life, you need to work with multi digits. Multi-digit numbers are those that have more than one digit in mathematics. They consist of two or more digits, with each digit’s value depending on where it is in the number. A digit’s place value is determined by its position within a multi-digit number; the rightmost digit represents the units place, the next digit to the left represents the tens place, and so on.
The problematic section of the question is made harder by word problems. Hence, while resolving issues, pay close attention. Try to determine what is required in the word problem by carefully reading the problems out loud.
Our children from grades 1-5, especially children from 4th grade to 5th grade, will be able to learn basic mathematics very quickly and interactively with the help of these multi digit addition word problems. These methods should assist your young champ in learning the basics of mathematical operation learning and laying a solid foundation.

- You need to add 27 to 19 to get the total number of balloons.
- Write down the numbers 27 and 19 in a column.
- First add the ones place numbers 7 and 9. You will get 16. Write down the 6 in the ones place of summation.
- Now, you have a carry 1. You add this carry to the tens place.
- You have 2 and 1 at the tens place. Add them. Then add the carry with it. You will get the number 4
- Write down the number in the tens place of the summation.
- Finally, you get the result 46.
Problem: You have 15 pencils and 12 erasers. How many pencils and erasers do you have together?
- You need to add the numbers to get the total number of pencils and erasers.
- Write down the numbers 15 and 12 in a column.
- Add the ones place numbers first.
- Then add the tens place numbers.
- You will get the total number is 27.

- Write down the numbers 25128 and 2245 in a column. Be careful while writing the numbers.
- Sum up the one’s place first. You will get 13. Write down the 3 in one’s place and take the 1 as carry.
- Then sum up the ten’s place number and add the carry. Respectively sum up the hundred and thousands place numbers one by one in the same way.
- Finally, you will get the result 27373.
