what is 2+2
2 Answers | Add Yours
You notice that this is an addition of two like terms (2=2).
The plus sign signifies that the terms 2 and 2 are combined together to yield 4.
The result (4) of addition of these terms, is expressed with an equal sign such that:
`2 + 2 = 4`
If you need to verbalize `2 + 2 = 4` you need to say " two plus two yields four).
Hence, adding two positive like terms yields the double of the term such that: `2 + 2 = 2*2 = 4` .
