Problem 2
Noah starts with 0 and then adds the number 5 four times. Diego starts with 1 and then multiplies by the number 5 four times. For each expression, decide whether it is equal to Noah’s result, Diego’s result, or neither.
 \(4 \boldcdot 5\)
 \(4+5\)

Problem 3
Decide whether each equation is true or false, and explain how you know.
 \(9 \boldcdot 9 \boldcdot 3 = 3^5\)
 \(7 + 7 + 7 = 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3\)
 \(\frac{1}{7} \boldcdot \frac{1}{7} \boldcdot \frac{1}{7} = \frac{3}{7}\)
 \(4^1 = 4 \boldcdot 1\)

\(6 + 6 + 6 = 6^3\)
