Abstract: This paper contains an expansion of the combination theorems to cover the following problems. New rank $ 1$ parabolic subgroups are produced, while, as in previous versions, all elliptic and parabolic elements are tracked. A proof is given that the combined group is analytically finite if and only if the original groups are; in the analytically finite case, we also give a formula for the hyperbolic area of the combined group (i.e., the hyperbolic area of the set of discontinuity on the $ 2$-sphere modulo $ G$) in terms of the hyperbolic areas of the original groups. There is also a new variation on the first combination theorem in which the common subgroup has finite index in one of the two groups.
