EXAMPLE

one + ten = eleven (6 letters on both sides of the equal sign);

ten + two = twelve (6 letters on both sides);

two + twenty = twenty-two (9 letters on both sides);

twenty + three = twenty-three (11 letters on both sides);

three + thirty = thirty-three (11 letters on both sides);

thirty + four = thirty-four (10 letters on both sides);

four + nine = thirteen (8 letters on both sides);

nine + five = thirteen (8 letters on both sides); etc.
