Problem Solving-Writing in Math
Question is:
Use pictures, numbers, or words to tell how 6+8 and 6+6 are related?
May be thinking too much into it as I was trying to find a correlation between the numbers and they may interconnect. Currently just saying that they relate as they both have the #6 in them and they are both addition equations - but it seems to simple of an answer.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

They both have the same augend (namely "6").
I might point out that they are not 'equations' (see the term you used that I colored red below). They are expressions

I was searching for the same problem, PCmath! I figured the same thing as Ultraglide..that they are both really 6+6, only one is +2 more. I don't know what else it would be!?! It confuses me and I'm not even that age!

Maybe the fact that you are adding 8 in one case and 6 in the other (i.e. 8 is two more than 6) will give a sum which is 2 greater?
