   public static void Main()
      Decimal number1 = 120.07m;
      Decimal number2 = 163.19m;
      Decimal number3 = number1 + number2;
      Console.WriteLine("{0} + {1} = {2}", 
                        number1, number2, number3);
// The example displays the following output:
//        120.07 + 163.19 = 283.26

If the language you're using doesn't support custom operators, call the Add method instead.
