Tips for Adding Two Four-Digit Values - To make kids understand the addition of larger numbers, you need to tell them different ways to do so. However, the basic method for adding two four-digit numbers is that it needs to line up perfectly. Such that, you can place one number over the other such that the ones, tens, hundreds and thousands are on top of each other. Let us take an example. We have to add two numbers, 4567 and 2456. 4567 + 2456 = 7023. The ones are added together at first, i.e. 7 + 6 = 13. Then you can take 1 carry to the tens place and add it with the other two numbers. The numbers are then added together, i.e. (6 + 5 + 1 =12). 1 will be further carried to the hundreds' lineup. The next two numbers are 5 and 4, which will be added with the carried 1 (5 + 4 + 1 = 10). The 1 will be further carried to the thousands' column; and will be added with 4 and 2 to give the answer of 7. These lessons and worksheets will have students learn to find the sums of two four-digit values.
