Or three plus five is eight.

Or three plus five equals eight.

Three and five add up to eight sounds a little funny, but I guess it's okay too.

Is not there a shortest expression?

I mean... Three - added - to - five - is - eight. it seems to me too long. I'm sure it must have a shorter one.

In my language we can say: "Una afegida a dues fan tres". (1+2=3). But we say:"una mes dues, tres". Or "una i dues, tres"
