# Addend Definition

In mathematics, the **values or numbers added to each other to form a sum** are known as an **addend**. Or, in other words, a **group of values or terms added together to create an aggregate or sum** is called an **addend**, also known as an operand.

For instance, if two balls are added with the three balls, that makes five balls in total, then the two and three balls are the addends.

Let us have another example: For instance, if a number five is added with a number three, create a sum or total of eight. Then the number five and three will be called addend or operand.
