## Program to add two numbers in Python

In this python program, we will be learning to add two numbers using Python.

To better understand the concept we have an **example:**

**Input: **

a=5,

b=6

**Output:**

sum=11

Here, input a and b is taken by the user and then we get the resulting sum as output.

**Algorithm:**

1) Input the numbers from the user.

2) Addition of numbers is stored into a variable “sum”.

3) Print the sum.

**Code**:

`a=int(input(“enter the first number:”)) //input first number`

b=int(input(“enter the second number:”)) //input second number

sum=a+b //addition of two numbers

`print(“sum:”, sum) //the required sum is printed`

**Output:**

`enter the first number: 2`

enter the second number: 4

`sum: 6`
