a little more then @musefan suggested, it's a table

input = 1, next input is +1: return 2
input = 1, next input is -1 return 0
input = 1, next input is +2 return 3
input = 1, next input is -2 return -1
...
input = 10, next input is is +10 return 20

....or at very most 1 step of a finite state machine.

one thing it's not is "logic"

... it's 100% mechanical the same way a mechanical calendar looks like it's "doing logic" to handle different length months.

a better design was the mechanical calculator: it had a very elegant way to handle carries
i.e. 7 (+ 6) lands on 3 + 1 carry to next significant digit, 7 X 3 -> 7 (+ 2 rotations of 7) resulting in landing on 1 with 2 carries happening (note how it discounts the multiplier by 1 to not need to 'reset' the starting point or use a 'register'). Division was really complicated (start by looking how the Z80 types did it) and cost a lot extra, decimals were just a fixed point in the wheel set.
