    hint: focus on the term `increased ` what math operation increases a number?

    eg: 2 increases to 9 what happened to 2? Did we divide? subtract? or something else?

    so if you start with `a` and increase it by `b`, you basically add on `b`

    let's say we had the statement "the number 10 increased by 12" how would we write that in math notation?

    "the number 10 increased by 12" ----> `10+12`

    but that's not the point really, the point is that you start with `a` and add on `b`
