  1. We hug and yes, we make love
    And always just say "Goodnight" (la-la-la-la-la)
    And we cuddle, sure I do love it
    But I need your lips on mine
    Can you kiss me more?
    We're so young, boy
    We ain't got nothin' to lose, oh, oh
    It's just principle
    Baby, hold me
    'Cause I like the way you groove, oh, oh

Here, we see the sum will be less than 100 million tons, so we can convert to scientific notation before we do the addition without requiring extra steps. The total waste is the sum of the amounts of waste in the two years.

    ... 3.75×10⁷ + 3.04×10⁷ = (3.75 +3.04)×10⁷ = 6.79×10⁷ . . . tons
