hi help please? ^.^
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?
yes, adding increases the number
so if you start with `a` and increase it by `b`, you basically add on `b`
im still confused how i solve the question
let's say we had the statement "the number 10 increased by 12" how would we write that in math notation?
im not sure
you'd add like we were talking above
"the number 10 increased by 12" ----> `10+12`
which is 24
ah i get it thx
10+12 = 22
but that's not the point really, the point is that you start with `a` and add on `b`
to get `a+b`
lol my bad
you were probably overthinking things?
