What is Additive Identity?
Additive identity is one of the properties of addition. The addition is the process of taking two or more numbers and adding them together. In other words, it is the total sum of all the numbers.
There are four mathematical properties of addition. These are:

Closure Property

Commutative Property

Associative Property

Additive Identity Property
Additive Identity
Example:
2 + 0 = 2
0 + 5 = 5
5 kids + 0 kids = 5 kids
A flock of 12 birds sat over the branch of a tree. No more birds joined them. How many birds are sitting on the branch of the tree?
As no bird joined the flock of 12 birds, hence the number of birds remained the same.
This can be written in a mathematical expression as
12 birds + 0 birds = 12 birds
