# Python – Tensorflow math.add() method

• Last Updated : 07 Jan, 2022

Tensorflow `math.add()` method returns the a + b of the passes inputs. The operation is done on the representation of a and b. This method belongs to math module.

Syntax: `tf.math.add(a, b, name=None)`

Arguments

• a: This parameter should be a Tensor and also from the one of the following types: bfloat16, half, float32, float64, uint8, int8, int16, int32, int64, complex64, complex128, string
• b: This should also be a Tensor and must have the same type as a.
• name: This is optional parameter and this is the name of the operation.

Return: It returns a Tensor having the same shape as of input a.

Let’s see this concept with the help of few examples:
Example 1:

## Python3

 `# Importing the Tensorflow library ``import` `tensorflow as tf `` ` `# A constant a and b``a ``=` `tf.constant(``3``)``b ``=` `tf.constant(``6``)  `` ` `# Applying the math.add() function ``# storing the result in 'c' ``c ``=` `tf.math.add(a, b)`` ` `# Initiating a Tensorflow session ``with tf.Session() as sess:``    ``print``(``"Input 1"``, a)``    ``print``(sess.run(a))``    ``print``(``"Input 2"``, b)``    ``print``(sess.run(b))``    ``print``(``"Output: "``, c)``    ``print``(sess.run(c))`

Output:

```Input 1 Tensor("Const_79:0", shape=(), dtype=int32)
3
Input 2 Tensor("Const_80:0", shape=(), dtype=int32)
6
9
```

Example 2:

## Python3

 `# Importing the Tensorflow library ``import` `tensorflow as tf `` ` `# A constant a and b``a ``=` `tf.constant(u``"This is "``)``b ``=` `tf.constant(u``"GeeksForGeeks"``)  `` ` `# Applying the math.add() function ``# storing the result in 'c' ``c ``=` `tf.math.add(a, b)`` ` `# Initiating a Tensorflow session ``with tf.Session() as sess:``    ``print``(``"Input 1"``, a)``    ``print``(sess.run(a))``    ``print``(``"Input 2"``, b)``    ``print``(sess.run(b))``    ``print``(``"Output: "``, c)``    ``print``(sess.run(c))`

Output:

```Input 1 Tensor("Const_87:0", shape=(), dtype=string)
b'This is '
Input 2 Tensor("Const_88:0", shape=(), dtype=string)
b'GeeksForGeeks'
