Care must be taken, therefore, in writing numbers to be added, that all the units' digits shall fall in one column, all the tens' digits in the next column (to the left), and all the hundreds' digits in the next column, and so on. 39. To add columns of digits with absolute accuracy and great rapidity is a real accomplishment, and the operation of addition should be continued until both these results are secured. The beginner, however, will need some test of the accuracy of his work. One test is to begin at the bottom of the right-hand column in adding, and write on a piece of waste-paper the entire sum of each column; then to begin at the top of the left-hand column and write also the entire sum of each column; finally, to add the sums obtained in the first addition, and the sums obtained in the second addition, and compare the results. The study of an example will make the process understood. to be By comparing the results we find each sum 3,135,006, and so infer that the operation is correct.
