5 + n = one group of n = n + 5 - If n was a positive number, the answer would be one group of n + five and the magnitude would be shorter. - If n was a negative number, the answer would be 5 - n and the magnitude would also be shorter.

5n = five groups of n = n X 5 - If n was a positive number, the answer would be positive and the magnitude would be longer. - If n was a negative number, the answer would still be negative and the magnitude would also be shorter.

5n is bigger. If n is 5, then 5n=25, 5+n=10.

ReplyDeleteUnless n is negative

Delete5n is bigger because 5n is 5 times of n.

ReplyDelete5n= nnnnn

5+n= 5 n

ReplyDelete- If n was a positive number, the answer would be one group of n + five and the magnitude would be shorter.

- If n was a negative number, the answer would be 5 - n and the magnitude would also be shorter.

5n = five groups of n = n X 5

- If n was a positive number, the answer would be positive and the magnitude would be longer.

- If n was a negative number, the answer would still be negative and the magnitude would also be shorter.

Therefore, 5n is larger in magnitude.
