-However, if you have both electric and magnetic fields you **cannot** just add together the magnetic and electric fields. These are different quantities with different units; therefore, they do not add together (this would be like trying to add time to mass - it's just not a thing you can do). +However, **if you have both electric and magnetic fields you //cannot// just add together the magnetic and electric fields.** These are different quantities with different units; therefore, they do not add together (this would be like trying to add time to mass - it's just not a thing you can do).
