**2-Digit Adding without regrouping**

Are you ready to be an addition ace? Today, we’re going on a special number adventure – adding big numbers without carrying! It’s like magic, but it’s really just awesome math.

**What’s the Secret?**

Usually, when things get too big in one place when adding, we have to move some over (that’s regrouping). But, with this cool trick, the numbers we add always fit perfectly!

**Step-by-Step Superhero Steps**

Let’s say we want to add 42 and 36:

**Number Power-Up:**Write your numbers, one on top of the other, lining up the ones and tens places:`42 +36 ---`

**Mighty Ones:**Focus on the right side (ones place). Add those digits together – 2 + 6 = 8. Write the ‘8’ below the line, right under the ones.**Terrific Tens:**Time to tackle the left side (tens place). Add those digits – 4 + 3 = 7. Write the ‘7’ below the line, under the tens.**You Did It!**Check it out:`42 +36 --- 78`

78 is your answer!
