Adding Memory Chips - Remove Old Ones?

I haven't taken apart the laptop yet. But when I do, I anticipate seeing existing memory chips inside. When I add the new memory chips, am I supposed to remove the old memory chips or just shove more on top of each other?

Is this a good question?

You take the old ones out (study the steps, notes and tools required). There are only two banks. *Originally, both the official and actual maximum RAM was 8 GB. However, as confirmed by site sponsor OWC, if running OS X 10.7.5 or higher, updated with the latest EFI, and equipped with proper specification memory modules, this model can support up to 16 GB of RAM.
