Addition is a mathematical operation that represents combine collection of objects together into a larger collection.
It is signified by the plus sign (+).
Multiplication and addition are performed by some properties. We shall see the properties of addition below.

We have many addition properties -
It says the order in which numbers are added does not effect the sum. For example
A + B = B + A
means 2 + 3 = 3 + 2
So we can say that order of numbers in addition does not effect the final result.
It says the way in which addends are grouped does not effect the sum . For example
A+ (B + C) = (A + B) + C
means 2+ (3+ 4) = (2 + 3) + 4
By this property we can understand if we have 3 numbers we can add them according to our wish, final result will be same in all cases.
It says the sum of any number and zero is number itself for example A + 0 = A
means 2 + 0 = 2
This is the simplest property of addition, in this 0 is known as additive quantity.
There are many applications of these properties of addition. It may looks very simple but we can use these properties in many things one of that example is computer analogs.
It says that the if the addition of two numbers are zero then one number is inverse of other. For any number its negative is its additive inverse that is A + (-A) = 0. a is inverse of (-A) and vice-versa.
means (-3) + 3 = 0 so (-3) is the additive inverse of 3.
