English term or phrase:Term missing addend
That number does not move the car enough. You may want to click the vocabulary button to find the meaning of the term missing addend.
This means that the number you selected to move the car is not the right one, therefore, you need to click another button to find out what's the right number.
The numbers or the objects to be added are generally called the "terms", the "addends", or the "summands"; this terminology carries over to the summation of multiple terms. This is to be distinguished from factors, which are multiplied.
But I think here it is used figuratively. Therefore, putting it simply, you need to click another button "para obtener el sumando/componente del significado/término que falta"
