# What are the carried numbers called in an Addition problem

What is the 1 that is carried called?

These are all Latin, would this make sense?

The Latin word for "carry" is "porto", would it be called Porto?

Just guessing here

Example:

  123  <-- Augend or Addend
+  9  <-- Addend
______

1   <-- What is this called?
123
+  9
______
2

123
+  9
______
132  <-- Sum

Carriend? I don't recall that having a name. –  Pedro Tamaroff Jun 2 '12 at 1:15
@PeterTamaroff I like the thought process with that answer! Was thinking Addend maybe? –  Phill Pafford Jun 2 '12 at 1:16
I have seen it called "the carry." –  André Nicolas Jun 2 '12 at 1:19

In compsci, when we add binary numbers, we call this the "carry bit."
