The sum could be anything, but it would be a positive number if the two addends are positive.
sum and addends
it is sum
You add two addends to get a sum. For example, in 3 + 5 = 8, 3 and 5 are addends, and 8 is the sum.
In 1 + 2 = 31 and 2 are the addends and 3 is the sum of the two addends.
The numbers being added together are called addends. The answer is called the sum. 4+2=6 Four and two are addends and six is the sum.
It depends on what the sum is going to be.
The sum of a set of addends whose sign is the same is the sum of the absolute values of the addends with the same sign as the addends.
The components of the question in an addition sum are called "addends".
