Can you think of a method that uses addition?

Post the code which you tried.

As exponentiation is repeated multiplication, so is multiplication repeated addition. In programming, when you have to do repeated things, you can use a loop structure(e.g. a for loop)

#include<iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
{
int n1,n2,holder=0;
cin>>n1>>n2;
for (int i=0;i<n2;i++)
{
holder=holder+n1;

}
cout<<holder<<endl;
}
commented: int num3 = 0; for(int i = 0; i < num1; i++) { num3 += num; } int numanswer = num3; +0
