00:00:01.280 --> 00:00:10.630
Check if the equal sign has been used correctly in five plus three plus six equals eight plus nine.
00:00:11.230 --> 00:00:12.950
Are the two sums equal?
00:00:14.090 --> 00:00:16.250
We’re checking two different sums.
00:00:17.060 --> 00:00:23.810
We’re given the statement five plus three plus six is equal to eight plus nine.
00:00:24.950 --> 00:00:29.540
To verify that, we’ll need to find the solution of both sides.
00:00:30.700 --> 00:00:34.950
We can start by adding five plus three plus six.
00:00:35.610 --> 00:00:43.950
I know that five plus three equals eight and eight plus six equals 14.
00:00:44.750 --> 00:00:47.280
The sum of the left side is 14.
00:00:48.040 --> 00:00:51.800
On the right side, we only have two values: eight plus nine.
00:00:52.220 --> 00:00:55.260
We know that eight plus nine equals 17.
00:00:56.280 --> 00:01:02.460
And now we recognize that this statement says 14 equals 17.
00:01:03.530 --> 00:01:05.930
14 does not equal 17.
00:01:06.530 --> 00:01:11.240
Five plus three plus six does not equal eight plus nine.
00:01:12.000 --> 00:01:14.900
To answer our question are the two sums equal?
00:01:14.930 --> 00:01:16.440
We can say no.
00:01:17.560 --> 00:01:19.650
These two sums are not equal.
