Nope. You cannot do that, since scalars don't follow vector algebra.
No, only like quantities can be added, so even if both quantities are vectors eg force and acceleration, or both scalars like energy and time, they still cannot be ...

Ok, but is it true can we Multiply or not ?
Or I mean wiki.answers
Yes, we can multiply.
We can multiply a scalar by a vector because multiplying a scalar by a vector is just like adding the vector to itself again and again.
What is the special name given to this perticular theorem then ?
~Wiki answers . @ParthKohli ,Happy ?
It's no theorem.
ok then what can it be call then ?
It's just... I don't know lol
Ok Thanks
lets try it \[\alpha=6\\ \vec v=\langle1,2,0\rangle\] \[\alpha+\vec v=6+\langle1,2,0\rangle=\,?\] \[\alpha\times \vec v=6\langle1,2,0\rangle=\langle6\times1,6\times2,6\times0\rangle=\langle 6,12,0\rangle\]
