Addition is a mathematical operation that represents combining collections of objects together into a larger collection
This is one of the four elementary, mathematical operations of arithmetic; with the others being addition, subtraction and division.
Boilerplate operation complex
"However multiplying is a more complex operation than addition or shifting"
from question "Which yields faster code?"
"The boilerplate code would multiplying rapidly when the express get more complex than addition of two terms"
from question "Non-monadic error handling in Haskell?"
"You can try x1 c1 and then x1 + c1 but i don t think the addition is much faster than multiplying on todays cpus"
from question "Optimizing Python for loop"
"So the compiler can t make the optimization because it can t tell if you wanted the exact behavior where multiplying is better or the implemented behavior where the scale of sum affects the result of the addition"
from question "Floating point multiplication vs repeated addition"
"We don t actually multiplying it s slower than simple addition and as you can see we destroy temporary register t0 but don t touch s0 s1"
from question "MIPS multiplication problem"
"If multiplying is slower than addition then case 2 is slightly slower than case 1"
from question "Speed of least common multiple algorithms (java)"
"So we must show that a gradeschool multiplying circuit is o log n times deeper than an addition circuit"
from question "Is integer multiplication really same speed as addition on modern CPU"
