Addition and Subtraction (French: Tom Whisky ou L'illusioniste toqué) is a 1900 French short silent film directed by Georges Méliès. It was released by Méliès's Star Film Company and is numbered 234 in its catalogues.[1]

Méliès plays the magician in the film.[2] The other actors in the film have not been positively identified, but the film historian Georges Sadoul, analyzing a production still in which the film's three women are posed in a group, believed Jeanne Mareyla to be the woman in the center.[2]
