00:00:00.720 --> 00:00:05.760
What is the sum of 171 and 311?
00:00:07.040 --> 00:00:18.240
Let’s take these two values and line them up vertically, one seven one plus three one one.
00:00:19.240 --> 00:00:26.280
When we’re solving an addition problem in this way, we start by adding all the way on the right in the units place.
00:00:27.480 --> 00:00:30.840
One plus one is two.
00:00:32.000 --> 00:00:35.360
We shift to the left one position.
00:00:36.040 --> 00:00:39.560
And we add the tens place.
00:00:40.600 --> 00:00:44.160
Seven plus one equals eight.
00:00:45.120 --> 00:00:48.280
Again, we shift to the left.
00:00:49.040 --> 00:00:53.200
And we add in the hundreds place.
00:00:54.360 --> 00:00:57.720
One plus three equals four.
00:00:58.720 --> 00:01:09.240
This tells us that 171 plus 311 equals 482.
