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

**Prerequisite 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.**People are also reading:**
