# Can't I Calculate It Directly?

$\large{\begin{array}{cccccccc} &0 .& 1 & 2& 3 & 1&2& 3 & 1&\ldots\\ +&0. & 0 & 1& 2 & 3&1& 2 & 3&\ldots\\ \hline \phantom0\\ \hline \end{array}}$

The above shows an incomplete columnar addition of the two fractions $$\dfrac{123}{999}$$ and $$\dfrac{123}{9990}$$ when written in decimal representation.

What is the value of $$12\times10101 + 123\times1001$$?
