## Main Question or Discussion Point

how much is two times bigger than 3?

i believe it is 6 because from my knowledge, two times bigger = 2 folds

but many people around me say it is 9.. And their reason, is 3 + 2(3)

-------------------------------------------------------------------

In general:

two times bigger than x

a. 2x

b. x + 2x

-------------------------------------------------------------------

so, which is it true?
