    In the ring of integers with the usual addition and multiplication: 1+1=2. Consult the Peano Axioms if you want a reason.

    In the ring of integers modulo 2: 1+1=0.

    Final answer: Just go with 2 if you don't want to play around with basic algebra.
    And don't read the stuff Phenoca posted.

    1+1=0b10. youll always confuse yourself when you use a different formula when it comes to basic math.
