2+3=?

### 3 Answers | Add Yours

You are finding the sum of 2 and 3.

Since we are adding 2 positive numbers, we find the sum of their absolute values and use the common sign.

The absolute value of 2 is 2.

The absolute value of 3 is 3.

The sum of the absolute values with the common sign is 5.

**Therefore, 2 + 3 = 5. **

**The sum is 5.**

simple to answer in the best way is to first take out ur any 2 fingers in ur hand then increase 3 more.The result is five.By another way:-

draw 2 lines.Then draw three more lines.The result is now 5.Show:-

I + I + I + I + I = 5

2+3=5

**because, if we add 2and 3 we get 5**
