Hi guys, If I have a value that I use to multiply a base value with I call it the "multiplier", for example: base=10; multiplier=1.1; new value=base*multiplier=11; What do I call the term that I add with ? Like this: base=10; addifier=4; new value=base+addifier=14; I don't think "addifier" is the proper name. What should I call it ? I'm sorry if this is a silly question.

hehehe I dont really know if there is a term, if there is, I dont know it. Im not sure what your using this for but if this is for a game then I might use "bonus" instead of addifier. Not a great name either but I guess its up to you lol :-p

Good luck

lol addifier. I would have to agree that I don't think that's the proper name, but I kind of like it =).

Edit: Yeah, I'd use increment probably.

In this problem:
5 + 4 + 3 = 12
5 is the augend, 4 and 3 are addends, and 12 is the sum.


I learned something new today - thank you [smile]
