1. But get to know the endings.

 19 + 4 =  20 + 3 = 23 25 + 8 = 30 + 3 = 33 18 + 3 =  20 + 1 = 21 36 + 5 = 40 + 1 = 41 27 + 6 =  30 + 3 = 33 49 + 8 = 50 + 7 = 57 47 + 5 =  50 + 2 = 52 69 + 3 = 70 + 2 = 72 59 + 2 =  60 + 1 = 61 78 + 5 = 80 + 3 = 83 67 + 4 =  70 + 1 = 71 88 + 7 = 90 + 5 = 95 75 + 7 =  80 + 2 = 82 89 + 5 = 90 + 4 = 94 78 + 4 =  80 + 2 = 82 96 + 8 = 100 + 4 = 104 85 + 6 =  90 + 1 = 91 99 + 7 = 100 + 6 = 106 99 + 9 =  100 + 8 = 108 109 + 6 = 110 + 5 = 115

2.  Adding by endings.  Add the following from left to right.  Then
2.  check your answer by adding from right to left.

2.  a)  9 + 3 + 5 + 6 + 8 + 7 + 9 = 47

2.  b)  8 + 8 + 7 + 4 + 5 + 9 + 6 + 7 = 54

2.  c)  9 + 4 + 8 + 2 + 6 + 8 + 3 + 7 + 7 + 9 = 63

2.  d)   3 + 8 + 7 + 5 + 5 + 6 + 8 + 2 + 9 + 6 = 59

3.  Complements.  Add these as skillfully as you can.

3.  a)   7 + 3 + 2 + 8 + 5 + 1 + 9  = 35

3.  b)   6 + 3 + 7 + 4 + 2 + 1 + 10 + 8  = 41

3.  c)   9 + 21 + 24 + 7 + 6 + 3 + 8  = 78

4.  Add each column mentally.  Add the tens, then add the ones.

3.  10 + 35 = 45       50 + 34 = 84       30 + 75 = 105       64 + 70 = 134

3.  20 + 41 = 61       30 + 45 = 75       90 + 58 = 148       85 + 40 = 125

3.  30 + 27 = 57       70 + 16 = 86       80 + 64 = 144       92 + 20 = 112

3.  40 + 18 = 58       50 + 28 = 78       70 + 88 = 158       78 + 50 = 128

3.  30 + 67 = 97       40 + 57 = 97       60 + 92 = 152       31 + 80 = 111

5.  Add each column mentally.

150 + 30 = 180       160 + 61 = 221

240 + 50 = 290       240 + 72 = 312

310 + 43 = 353       380 + 84 = 464

420 + 55 = 475       460 + 91 = 551

530 + 45 = 575       550 + 79 = 629

660 + 39 = 699       690 + 45 = 735

780 + 42 = 822       870 + 86  = 956

Add each column mentally.  Add the tens, then add the ones.

6. 7. 8. 34 + 23 = 57 65 + 72 = 137 34 + 28 = 62 57 + 32 = 89 34 + 95 = 129 57 + 36 = 93 25 + 43 = 68 85 + 71 = 156 25 + 46 = 71 41 + 55 = 96 64 + 73 = 137 18 + 55 = 73 34 + 45 = 79 96 + 83 = 179 36 + 59 = 95 66 + 42 = 108 77 + 42 = 119 44 + 57 = 101

Add the hundreds, then the tens, then the ones.

11.
213 + 556 = 769
524 + 354 = 878
245 + 327 = 572
837 + 526 = 1363
