Java integer FAQ: How do I add two Java integers (Java `int`

fields)?

Answer: Just use the Java addition operator, the plus sign (`+`

), to add two integers together.

Here's a quick example: If you have to drive 23 miles east, then 14 miles north, what is the total distance you had to drive?

int distanceEast = 23; int distanceNorth = 14; int totalDrivingDistance = distanceEast + distanceNorth;

The values `23`

and `14`

are two Java `int`

(integer) fields, and the `totalDrivingDistance`

will contain the sum of those two values.
