# Java Integer sum() Method

Java `sum()` method is a part of the `Integer` class of the `java.lang` package. This method returns the numerical sum of the values passed as arguments (i.e simply adds the two numbers passed as argument in accordance with the `+` operator).

### Syntax:

``public static int sum(int a, int b)  ``

### Parameters:

The parameters passed includes the two integer values whose addition is to be returned.

### Returns:

Returns the sum of the two integer values passed as parameters.

## Example 1:

Here, some positive and negative numbers are taken for a better understanding of the method.

``````import java.lang.Integer;

public class StudyTonight
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
int a = 10;
int b = 29;
int c = -67;
// It will return the sum of a and b
System.out.println("The sum of a and b is = " + Integer.sum(a, b));
// It will return the sum of a and b
System.out.println("The sum of a and b is = " + Integer.sum(b, c));
}
}``````

The sum of a and b is = 39
The sum of a and b is = -38

## Example 2:

Here is a user-defined example where anyone using this code can put a value of his choice and get the equivalent output.

``````import java.util.Scanner;

public class StudyTonight
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
try
{
System.out.println("Enter the two values : ");
Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
int a = sc.nextInt();
int b = sc.nextInt();
// will return the sum of a and b.
System.out.println("sum is = " + Integer.sum(a, b));
}
catch(Exception e)
{
System.out.println("Invalid Input");
}
}
}  ``````

Enter the two values :
67 54
sum is = 121
****************************
Enter the two values :
55 -33
sum is = 22
****************************
Enter the two values :
0x56 0x767
Invalid Input
