You have to say, in some way, that there are two(or possibly, but not likely, more) equal values. For example:

1) Pat and Pan have 7 apples. If Pan has 2 more apples than Pat, how many apples do they each have? (Pat+2=Pan, Pan+Pat=7)

2) John has three toys. James has four. How many toys do they have together? (3+4=?)
