# Math is simple

## Add it Up

## Math 101

## The key to understanding mathematics is to remember that at all level the computations can be brought back to adding and subtracting.

## Addition

** 3 + 3 = 6 **

**( 1 + 1 + 1) + (1 + 1 + 1) = (1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1)**

## Multiplication

** 3 x 2 = 6**

** 3 + 3 = 6**

**( 1 + 1 + 1) + (1 + 1 + 1) = (1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1)**

## Exponents

## An exponent is a number that tells how many times the base number is used as a factor. For example, 3^{2} indicates that the base number 3 is used as a factor 2 times. To determine the value of 3^{2}, multiply 3 x 3 which would give the result 9.

## 3^{2 = 3 x 3}

## 3 x 3 = 9

## 3 + 3 + 3 = 9

## (1 + 1 = 1) + (1 +1 +1) + (1 + 1 + 1) = (1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1)

## The rest is to learn how to write the math statement in a way that tells when to what.

Did you take the ideas of a custom writing service for your hot text? I think that you really have great argumentative essay performing skills. Thanks for sharing this!

Sorry, that isn't quite true. Derivatives and many concepts of symbolic algebra etc. involve either special continuous or infinitesimal operations, or logical categories etc. that must be described in relational terms. They aren't just about basic operations of calculation.
