Equivalent expression for n x a = a+ a+a+a....n times
Given: Expression for n x a .
To find : Write an equivalent expression for n x a using only addition.
Solution : We have given that n x a .
Here, we can say Sum of a is n times.
We can rewrite it n x a = a+ a+a+a....n times.
Example : 3 x 2 = 2 +2+ 2.
6 = 6 ( true)
Therefore , equivalent expression for n x a = a+ a+a+a....n times.
(-3, 16) split into place would give you 16= -3-3 + 7. A negative times a negative is always a positive number so, -3 x -3 = 9, 9+7=16
