# Add two numbers using ++ operator in C++.

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

In programming, the ++ operator is the increment operator that increases the value of the operand by 1. We can add two numbers using this operator by adding 1 to the number a, b number of times.

Example,

Input: a = 31 , b = 4
Output: 35

Explanation − adding 1 to 31 four times, sums up to 31 +1+1+1+1 = 35.

## Algorithm

Input: two integers a and b.
Step 1: loop from 0 to b and follow step 2.
Step 2: add 1 to b.
Step 3: print the value of a.

## Example

Live Demo

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main(){
int x = 324 , y= 76;
cout<<"The sum of "<<x<<" & "<<y;
if(y>0){
for(int i= 0; i<y;i++){
x++;
}
} else {
for(int i= y; i<0;i++){
x--;
}
}
cout<<" is "<<x;
return 0;
}

## Output

The sum of 324 & 76 is 400
