### Example

What is $$343 + 315$$?

Start from the ones column: 3 + 5 = 8

If the two numbers in a place value column add up to a number greater than 9, you must carry a digit.

### Example

What is $$343 + 329$$?

Start from the ones column: 3 + 9 = 12, place a 2 in the ones column and carry 10 to the tens column by placing a 1
