Yardstick Addition for Kids

Hey Kids,
In this section, we are going to learn the addition of two numbers using Yardstick method. This is an elementary method to solve math arithmetic problems.

3+8

Let's add the numbers 3 and 8. To add, first place your pointer on 3 in the yardstick as given below.

You just need to move forward over numbers on the yardstick to solve this arithmetic problem.
Now, the second number is 8. So move 8 numbers forward from 3 as shown in the picture.
