Question from jessica, a parent:

what is a addends my son needs to write a number sentence that has two addends that are the same

Hi Jessica.

Addends are just the numbers you add.

For example: "Five black cats plus three orange cats makes a total of eight cats." The addends in this sentence are five and three.
