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?
