The important idea in addition is to make sure the numbers being added (called the addends)
are in the correct place value column. For example lets say you borrow $ 7645
from a friend and later borrow an additional $ 47. Your friends adds the amount in the
following manner  $7645
                           + $47
                           $ 12,345
 Would you pay this amount?  Why?
