## What is an Addend in Math?

Addends in math refer to the numbers or terms that are added together to find their sum. When performing addition, the numbers being added are called addends. For example, in the addition problem 3 + 5 = 8, the numbers 3 and 5 are the addends, and 8 is the sum.

## Solved Examples on Addend

**Example 1: Find the sum of the addends in the expression 6 + x when x = 3.**

**Solution:**

Substitute x = 3 into the expression:

6 + x = 6 + 3 = 9

So, the sum of the addends 6 and x when x = 3 is 9.

**Example 2:If a and b re addends in the expression a + b = 15, and a = 8, find the value of b.**

**Solution:**

Substitute a = 8 into the expression:

8 + b = 15

Now, solve for bb:

b = 15 – 8 = 7

So, if a = 8, then b = 7 to make the sum a + b equal to 15.

**Example 3:Determine the value of xx in the expression 2x + 4 = 10.**

**Solution:**

Subtract 4 from both sides of the equation:

2x + 4 – 4 = 10 – 4

This simplifies to:

2x = 6

Now, divide both sides by 2:

x = \(\frac{6}{2} = 3\)

So, the value of xx that makes the expression 2x + 4 equal to 10 is 3.

These examples illustrate how to work with addends in different forms and solve for unknown values in addition expressions.
