Question

# Find the number that makes the equation true.18 + 32 = ⎕

Hint:

## The correct answer is: 50

### Now as we know that here we have to find the step by breaking one number. The fact that there are no steps to memorise is one of the best things about mental math. The "friendly number" addition approach facilitates working with large numbers. This is due to the fact that we are, in essence, decomposing the problem into more manageable components.Friendly numbers are multiples of 10 like 20, 30, 40 which makes the calculations easy. Here we will use the same and then find the step.Now we have given 18 + 32, let's solve this.We will break 32 to 30 and 2 first. 18 + 30 + 2Now add 18 and 30.48 + 2Finally adding the terms, we get:50So, the sum of 18 and 32 is 50.

Here the concept of Break Apart Numbers is used where a number is divided in two parts to make addition easy. The concept of friendly numbers is also used so that it becomes easy for addition or subtraction purpose. So, the first correct step for finding the sum of 18 + 32 mentally is 50.
