- n. The act or process of adding or uniting, especially so that the parts remain independent of one another: opposed to subtraction or diminution: as, a sum is increased by addition; to increase a heap by the addition of more. Specifically, in arithmetic, the uniting of two or more numbers in one sum; also, that branch of arithmetic which treats of such combinations. Simple addition is the adding of numbers, irrespective of the things denoted by them, or the adding of sums of the same denomination, as pounds to pounds, ounces to ounces, etc. Compound addition is the adding of sums of different denominations, as pounds, shillings, and pence to pounds, shillings, and pence, like being added to like. The addition of all kinds of multiple quantity is performed according to the principle of compound addition; thus, the addition of two imaginary quantities is effected by adding the real parts together to get the new real part, and the imaginary parts to get the new imaginary part. Logical addition is a mode of combination of terms, propositions, or arguments, resulting in a compound (the sum), true if any of the elements are true, and false only if all are false.
