# Python program to add two numbers

*By Lenin Mishra*

#### Method 1 - Simple addition

**Code**

```
num1 = 10
num2 = 5
# Adding both numbers
sum = num1 + num2
# printing values
print(f"Sum of {num1} and {num2} is {sum}")
```

**Output**

`Sum of 10 and 5 is 15`

#### Method 2 - Adding two number provided by user input

**Code**

```
num1 = input("Enter first number: ")
num2 = input("Enter second number: ")
# User might enter float
sum = float(num1) + float(num2)
# We get a float value
print(f"The sum of {num1} and {num2} is {sum}")
```

**Output**

```
Enter first number: 10
Enter second number: 2
The sum of 10 and 2 is 12.0
```

Now be careful with this method. We are using the `input()`

built in function of Python. Since it returns a string, we convert the string into number using the `float()`

function. Then, the numbers are added.

Using the built in `int()`

function will chop off the decimal places.

All the above codes use **f-strings**. Learn about f-strings here.
