If I have three plus three plus three plus three, I write, that is multiplication problem of three time or so Now. In said, if I have X instead of three, I would have four times necks. But I can only multiply them like that if they're all three. So they have to be like terms. They have to be the same number to do that. When I'm multiplying, I can multiply any two numbers together.
