 T O P I C    R E V I E W PCmath Posted - 09/18/2008 : 15:56:03 Problem Solving-Writing in MathQuestion 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. 3   L A T E S T    R E P L I E S    (Newest First) the_hill1962 Posted - 09/21/2010 : 14:14:42 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 expressionsquote:Originally posted by PCmathProblem Solving-Writing in MathQuestion 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.

Catgirl Posted - 09/19/2010 : 19:10:22 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! Ultraglide Posted - 09/19/2008 : 12:42:16 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?
