# How to Add Two Numbers in Python – Easy Programs

Last Updated : 22 Dec, 2023

Learn easy techniques and codes to add numbers in Python. Adding numbers in Python is a very easy task, and we have provided you 7 different ways to add numbers in Python.

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```

There are many methods to add two number in Python:

• Using “+” operator
• Defining a function that adds two number
• Using lambda function
• Using Recursive function

Each of these methods have been explained with their program below.

## Add Two Numbers with “+” Operator

Here num1 and num2 are variables and we are going to add both variables with the + operator in Python.

## Python3

 `# Python3 program to add two numbers` `num1 ``=` `15` `num2 ``=` `12`   `# Adding two nos` `sum` `=` `num1 ``+` `num2`   `# printing values` `print``(``"Sum of"``, num1, ``"and"``, num2 , ``"is"``, ``sum``)`

Output:

```Sum of 15 and 12 is 27
```

We will now see Python programs to add two numbers without using + operator.

## Add Two Numbers with User Input

In the below program to add two numbers in Python, the user is first asked to enter two numbers, and the input is scanned using the Python input() function and stored in the variables number1 and number2.

Then, the variable’s number1 and number2 are added using the arithmetic operator +, and the result is stored in the variable sum.

## Python3

 `# 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
```

## Add Two Numbers in Python Using Function

This program show adding two numbers in Python using function. We can define a function that accepts two integers and returns their sum.

## Python3

 `#To define a function that take two integers ` `# and return the sum of those two numbers` `def` `add(a,b):` `  ``return` `a``+``b`   `#initializing the variables` `num1 ``=` `10` `num2 ``=` `5`   `#function calling and store the result into sum_of_twonumbers` `sum_of_twonumbers ``=` `add(num1,num2)`   `#To print the result` `print``(``"Sum of {0} and {1} is {2};"` `.``format``(num1,` `                           ``num2, sum_of_twonumbers))`

Output

`Sum of 10 and 5 is 15;`

Initialize two variables num1, and num2. Find sum using the operator.add() by passing num1, and num2 as arguments and assign to su. Display num1,num2 and su

## Python3

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

Output

`Sum of 15 and 12 is 27`

## Add Two Number Using Lambda Function

Here we are going to use Python Lambda function for addition of two number with Python

## Python3

 `# Define a lambda function to add two numbers` `add_numbers ``=` `lambda` `x, y: x ``+` `y`   `# Take input from the user` `num1 ``=` `1` `num2 ``=` `2`   `# Call the lambda function to add the two numbers` `result ``=` `add_numbers(num1, num2)`   `# Print the result` `print``(``"The sum of"``, num1, ``"and"``, num2, ``"is"``, result)`

Output:

```The sum of 1 and 2 is 3
```

## Add Two Numbers Using Recursive Function

This code defines a recursive function to add two numbers by incrementing one number and decrementing the other. User inputs two numbers, and the sum is calculated and displayed.

## Python3

 `# Define a recursive function to add two numbers` `def` `add_numbers_recursive(x, y):` `    ``if` `y ``=``=` `0``:` `        ``return` `x` `    ``else``:` `        ``return` `add_numbers_recursive(x ``+` `1``, y ``-` `1``)`   `# Take input from the user` `num1 ``=` `1` `num2 ``=` `2`   `# Call the recursive function to add the two numbers` `result ``=` `add_numbers_recursive(num1, num2)`   `# Print the result` `print``(``"The sum of"``, num1, ``"and"``, num2, ``"is"``, result)`

Output:

```The sum of 1 and 2 is 3
```

We have covered multiple programs to add two number in Python. You can use any one of the above method, to perform the task. Adding two numbers is a very easy task in Python, can be done using multiple functionalities.
