You will probably have noticed that 2 PLUS 2 is the same as 2 TIMES 2 since the answer in both cases is 4.

This is not always true since, for example, 2 PLUS 3 is 5 whereas 2 TIMES 3 is 6. Are there other numbers with this property?

There aren't any more whole numbers but there are fractions, for instance:

^{3}/

_{2}+ 3 =

^{3}/

_{2}x 3 and

^{4}/

_{3}+ 4 =

^{4}/

_{3}x 4

Can you find any more?
