Adding Four-Digit Numbers

Earlier you learned how to add three-digit numbers. But what about four-digit numbers? ðŸ¤”

It works the same way! Letâ€™s take a look:

First we add the **Ones.** What sum goes in the Ones place?Â

7! Thatâ€™s right! âœ…

Next, we add the Tens:

What do we get when we add up the Tens?

7 again!

Good job! âœ…

Now, the Hundreds place:

It looks like we need to regroup! So what goes in the Hundreds place?

2! That's it! âœ…Â Â

Then, we put the 1 on top of the Thousands place.

Finally, we add up the digits in the Thousands. What do we get?

9! Excellent!Â

Letâ€™s try another one!

Here weâ€™re adding a three-digit number to a four-digit number.

What do we get when we add the Ones?Â

Great! 17. âœ…Â

We put the 7 in the Ones place and the 1 goes on top of the Tens place.

What is the total for the Tens?

3! Thatâ€™s right! âœ…

What is the sum of the Hundreds?

9! Great job! âœ…

Now the last step. What goes in the Thousands place?

1! Well done! âœ…

Let's try one more!

The first step is to add the Ones. What is 8+9?

17! Great work! âœ…

Since we need to regroup, we put 7 down in the Ones place, and 1 over the Tens place.

What do we get when we add the Tens?Â

12! Yes! âœ…Â

What goes in the Tens place?Â

2! Thatâ€™s right. âœ…Â Â

What goes on top of the Hundreds place?

1! Excellent! âœ…

What is the sum of the Hundreds?

7! Youâ€™re on a roll! âœ…

One more step. Letâ€™s add up the Thousands. What do we get?

9! You got it! âœ…Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â

Great job! ðŸŽ‰ Now, you can add four-digit numbers!

ðŸ¤— You can move on to the practice now!
