**Basic Operations of Arithmetic**

**May your day be filled with no
problems, but if there is a problem may you find the solution to it!**

**There are four basic operations of arithmetic: **

- addition
- subtraction
- multiplication
- division

**Addition** is adding two or
more numbers together to find the total sum of the numbers.

**There are three
parts to addition problems:**

- the addends
- the plus (+) and equal (=) signs
- the sum

The addends are the two or more numbers you are adding together. The plus sign (+) is used to let us know that we are adding the addends together and the equal sign (=) is used to let us know what the sum of the addends are. The sum is the final answer of the addition problem.

Robert Recorde was a mathematician
and a physician who invented the equals (=) sign and introduced the plus (+)
sign to English speakers in 1557.

**Which one of the four basic operations of math is your
favorite?**
