"Add" or "added" means addition. Of course, you may have to subtract to actually solve the problem. If the question is: "How much is added to 5 to get 7", that means 5 + "how much" = 7; but to actually calculate the "how much", you subtract 7 - 5.

How can use subtraction to check addition with mixed numbers?

Subtraction is the opposite operation to addition, so can be used to check an addition by subtracting one of the addends (numbers being added together) from the total obtained to see if the other addend results. This can be used with any two addends including mixed numbers. Working with mixed numbers is often much easier (especially for multiplication and division) by converting them first to improper fractions, doing the operations and converting any resultant improper fraction back to a mixed number.
