makes 2

Two three pence make one sixpence.

Makes 2 + 2 makes 4

The correct way to write the sentence is "two and two makes four."

The word make means "amount to". Therefore it would be 'one and one make two and two and two amount to four'. Now if you wanted to properly use the makes you would use it like this. John makes wooden toys for needy children. I make the pretty designs for the wooden toys. Sherry makes the gift boxes and pretty note cards for the child to receive the wooden toy. All together we made 700 toys this year. It takes us 12 months to make that many. So our total output of 700 make it 58.33 toys a month. Do you see the difference? Third person uses makes. First person uses make. Totally something uses make. Plural of people uses made. * * * * * The above discussion begs the question as to whether it is "amount to" or "amounts to". I go for the latter!
