No, not necessarily. If you know it is in context of addition (math)
However, the answer could be 47.
Better: What is the total when adding 4 and 7?

Re: What is the sum of...
It's not the expected question, but it's understandable. Total is synonymous with add up to:
What do 4 and 7 total?
What do 4 and 7 add up to?
What do they total?
What is their total?
