It should not say "One and one equals to two." It should say "One and one equals two."

I believe it should be "moja na moja ni sawa na mbili" or "moja na moja ni mbili"

Translating literally (I know -- not the best practice) "moja na moja sawasawa mbili" makes sense to me. Can someone help me understand the purpose of the extra "na"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AGreatUserName

Sawasawa needs na after it to introduce another noun, just as the same needs as after it for this purpose.

Asante! Time to up my vocabulary expectation! ;-)

Anjee is correct

I believe "one plus one equals two" should be accepted.
