Addition of large numbers becomes simpler when we use Splitting method. Placement of “Split” line should be such that there is no carry during addition.

For example:

3642 + 2439 =

splitting 1

splitting 2

The above diagrams clearly explains the benefit of correct placement of “split” line, so as we can avoid the carry.

There can be situations when splitting may require more “parts”.

For example:

3 0 1 4 5 5 + 1 4 0 8 2 8 :

This method can be used for addition of large numbers of varying lengths. Try for below:

5455 + 1723                                                      3246 + 1319

44444 + 28288                                                   666 + 293

77777777 + 18181818
