This is a pretty basic homework question which you should really answer using a Javascript textbook. But

First Number <input type = "text" id = "first"><br>
Second Number <input type = "text" id = "second"><br>
<input type = "button" value = "Add 'em up" onclick = "add()"><br>
Total <input type = text" id = "total" readonly>

<script type = "text/javascript">
function add() {
var a = document.getElementById("first").value;
var b = document.getElementById("second").value;
var t = Number(a) + Number (b); // convert from strings to numbers
document.getElementById("total").value = t;


“He who knows not and knows not he knows not: he is a fool - shun him.
He who knows not and knows he knows not: he is simple - teach him.
He who knows and knows not he knows: he is asleep - wake him.
He who knows and knows he knows: he is wise - follow him.”
