In this Python tutorial, you will learn how to write code in Python to add two numbers.

###
**
Prerequisites to Built the Program
**

###
**
Python Program to Add Two Numbers
**

```
number_1 = 100
number_2= 200
addition = number_1+number_2
print("The sum of {0} and {1} is:".format(number_1,number_2),addition)
```

####
**
Output
**

`The sum of 100 and 200 is: 300`

Similarly, we can perform the other operation on two numbers, such as multiplication (*), division (//), floor division (//), etc. In this above example, we have created
a program
where both the numbers were predefined, but python also provides us
```
```

function, which allows us to
write a program
where we can accept input from the user.
**
input()
**

###
**
Sum of Two Numbers Provided by The User:
**

```
number_1 = input("Enter the First Number: ")
number_2= input("Enter the Second Number: ")
addition = float(number_1) + float(number_2)
print("The sum of {0} and {1} is:".format(number_1,number_2),addition)
```

**
Output
**

```
Enter the First Number: 124.67
Enter the Second Number: 224.987
The sum of 124.67 and 224.987 is: 349.657
```

####
**
Behind the Code
**

In this above example, we have used the
**
input()
**
function to accept numbers from the user, and here when we perform the addition operation, we used the

```
```**
float()
**

function on both the numbers because when the python use the
```
input()
```

function to accept the user's input, it stores that input in the string format, but here we want numeric data, so we explicitly convert that string data into a float data type. Float represents all the numeric values, positive and negative, with decimal values.
