 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.

 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!

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.
