In this program, user is asked to enter two integers and this program will add these two integers and display it.

## Source Code

``````
/*C programming source code to add and display the sum of two integers entered by user */

#include <stdio.h>
int main( )
{
int num1, num2, sum;
printf("Enter two integers: ");
scanf("%d %d",&num1,&num2); /* Stores the two integer entered by user in variable num1 and num2 */

sum=num1+num2;      /* Performs addition and stores it in variable sum */
printf("Sum: %d",sum);  /* Displays sum */
return 0;
}
``````

Output

```Enter two integers: 12
11
Sum: 23```

Explanation

In this program, user is asked to enter two integers. The two integers entered by user will be stored in variables num1 and num2 respectively. This is done using `scanf( )` function. Then, + operator is used for adding variables num1 and num2 and this value is assigned to variable sum.

Finally, the sum is displayed and program is terminated.

There are three variables used for performing this task but, you can perform this same task using 2 variables only. It can done by assiging the sum of `num1` and `num2` to one of these variables as shown in figure below.

``````

/* C programming source code to add and display the sum of two integers entered by user using two variables only. */

#include <stdio.h>
int main( )
{
int num1, num2, sum;
printf("Enter a two integers: ");
scanf("%d %d",&num1,&num2);
num1=num1+num2; /* Adds variables num1 and num2 and stores it in num1 */
printf("Sum: %d",num1); /* Displays value of num1 */
return 0;
}
``````

This source code calculates the sum of two integers and displays it but, this program uses only two variables.
