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.
