In order to do basic addition, you must memorize some equations but fear not: FoxyMath will help you! When you are finished with this lesson, you will know the following equations:

5 + 1 = 6
5 + 2 = 7
5 + 3 = 8
5 + 4 = 9
5 + 5 = 10
5 + 6 = 11
5 + 7 = 12
5 + 8 = 13
5 + 9 = 14
5 + 10 = 15
5 + 11 = 16
5 + 12 = 17


The following exercise will help you learn the above equations and what they mean. Please take your time: take whatever time you need to learn the material.
