x+x+x = 3x , x*x*x = x^3
x+x+x+x = 4x , x*x*x*x = x^4
and so no
if it remains like this it is fineis there anything else to watch out for with these situations?
I can't tell u since I do not know what is the problems u have or what is your level exactly, maybe just somethings like this
x+x+x-x+x-x+x for example arrange them
5x -x-x = 5x -2x = 3x
