Increased - that's a plus or multiply?

If you have a question: "Increased - is that a plus or multiply?", then definitely no answer to it. You need to read or listen to what's next. If "increased by as much as something something", then this addition and the plus sign. For example, the number 7 is increased by 2 units. What are we doing? To previous value we added increase and get new value:

7 + 2 = 9

Increased. This is a plus or multiply. Mathematics for blondes.
Increased

If "increased in so many times," it is multiplication. For example, the number 7 is increased in 2 times. It is necessary to multiply the previous value of the specified number of times, and we get a new meaning:

7 * 2 = 14

As you can see, the numbers in the above examples are the same, and the result is different. It all depends on how to formulate a thought.
