The simplest way to concatenate two or more string variables is to write them one after another:

VAR2=" World"
echo "$VAR3"

The last line will echo the concatenated string:

Hello, World

You can also concatenate one or more variable with literal strings:

VAR1="Hello, "
echo "$VAR2"
Hello, World

In the example above variable VAR1 is enclosed in curly braces to protect the variable name from surrounding characters. When the variable is followed by another valid variable-name character you must enclose it in curly braces ${VAR1}.

To avoid any word splitting or globbing issues you should always try to use double quotes around the variable name. If you want to suppress variable interpolation and special treatment of the backslash character instead of double use single quotes.

Bash does not segregate variables by “type”, variables are treated as integer or string depending on contexts. You can also concatenate variables that contain only digits.

VAR1="Hello, "
VAR3=" Worlds"
echo "$VAR4"
Hello, 2 Worlds
VAR1="Hello, "
VAR1+=" World"
echo "$VAR1"
Hello, World

The following example is using the += operator to concatenate strings in bash for loop:
for ELEMENT in 'Hydrogen' 'Helium' 'Lithium' 'Beryllium'; do
  VAR+="${ELEMENT} "

echo "$VAR"
Hydrogen Helium Lithium Beryllium
This example will help you to understand to add two numbers in the bash script. This script takes the input of two numbers from the user and prints the sum of both numbers.

This is an example script initializes two variables with numeric values. Then perform an addition operation on both values and store results in the third variable.
