The addition operator, + (plus sign character), returns the sum of the arguments before and after it.

$MyNumber = 3+4 

The + sign is also used for string concatenation. Depending on context, Tinderbox will decide which operation is intended by the + sign. This is a very good reason to always enclose literal text strings in quotes.
