A word or phrase that expresses addition could be "also" or "adds to" or "increases the value." So you could combine the given pair of sentences and use the second sentence as an additional indication of value to what is stated in the first sentence. Your combined sentence could read "A stamp's rarity affects its value, and the way in which the perforations are made increases the value even more." Another possibility could read "A stamp's rarity affects its value, and the way in which the perforations are made also impacts the stamp's worth." Don't let the directions scare you - combining the sentences is easy, and you will reflect the mathematical process in the parentheses through the way in which the topics of the sentences relate to each other.
