Correct. Then you'd get (x/2) + (x/2) = x, the same as if you had just divided the 2x by the 2. Naturally, you should get the same result either way!

The addition symbol or lack thereof.So clearly in 2x, one must divide the x's. I looked at the math later and realized that this makes 1x. Okay so then what makes 2x a single term and its equivalent, x+x, two terms?

Does that answer your question?
