If you are weak at maths and don't understand basic mathematic operation then this is the best place to get a start. At first, maths can be difficult but once you start to understand, things get easy. In this lesson, you will learn how to add two numbers. Imagine you have 10 pencils and your friend bought 5 more pencils, how many pencils will you have altogether? The answer is 15 because you have ten pencils and your friend gift you five more so if you count, you will have 15 pencils altogether. That might be a little hard to understand and that is why we made a table known as the Addition Table.

How To Understand Additional Table

First, let's understand how to use this table, and then we can move to how to make this table on your own. Let's get back to our previous pencil example. So, you have 10 pencils, now select either row or column first. Here, we will pick the column first but you find the answer by choosing row first too. Find the number 10 in the column and select the whole column because our answer is somewhere there. Your friend gifted you 5 more pencils, since we already picked the column, now pick the row. Find number 5 and choose the whole row. Now you have narrowed down your working and select the cell which is coinciding (in this example, 15 value cell is coinciding) and that is your answer.

How To Make Addition Table

What we did is we took numbers from 1 to 10 in both starting row and column. Since we are working on addition table, that means we will be adding the number as we move on from different rows and columns. For example, we want to find the number in the second row and the third column. To find that number, first of all, check the number in the starting row and column. The number we got in the second row is 1 and the number we got in the third column is 2. Now add 2 and 1 and write the resultant number in that specific cell (which is the second row and the third column). This is how you make an addition table but the addition table has no limit. We made it of 10 rows and columns, you can make it of hundreds and thousands depending on you and your work.
