# Python program to add two numbers

Given two numbers num1 and num2. The task is to write a Python program to find the addition of these two numbers.

**Examples:**

Input: num1 = 5, num2 = 3 Output: 8 Input: num1 = 13, num2 = 6 Output: 19

In the below program to add two numbers, the user is first asked to enter two numbers and the input is scanned using the input() function and stored in the variables number1 and number2. Then, the variables number1 and number2 are added using the arithmetic operator + and the result is stored in the variable sum.

Below is the Python program to add two numbers:

Example 1:

`# Python3 program to add two numbers` ` ` `num1 ` `=` `15` `num2 ` `=` `12` ` ` `# Adding two nos` `sum` `=` `num1 ` `+` `num2` ` ` `# printing values` `print` `(` `"Sum of {0} and {1} is {2}"` `.` `format` `(num1, num2, ` `sum` `))` |

Output:

Sum of 15 and 12 is 27

**Example 2: **Adding two number provided by user input

`# Python3 program to add two numbers` ` ` `number1 ` `=` `input` `(` `"First number: "` `)` `number2 ` `=` `input` `(` `"\nSecond number: "` `)` ` ` `# Adding two numbers` `# User might also enter float numbers` `sum` `=` `float` `(number1) ` `+` `float` `(number2)` ` ` `# Display the sum` `# will print value in float` `print` `(` `"The sum of {0} and {1} is {2}"` `.` `format` `(number1, number2, ` `sum` `))` |

Output:

First number: 13.5 Second number: 1.54 The sum of 13.5 and 1.54 is 15.04
