    some easy to understand way"s"

    Hi,

    Background:

    I explained Concept 1 in an easy to understand way,
    and
    I explained Concept 2 in an easy to understand way,
    and
    I explained Concept 3 in an easy to understand way.


    Can I say:

    I explained those concepts in some easy to understand ways
    ?


    My opinion:

    There are 3 concepts, so there will be 3 ways to explain.
    So, it should be fine.

    However, I am not sure whether other people will think
    "there are 3 concept, so there should be 3 ways to explain" or "there are 3 concepts, but there may be more than or less than 3 ways to explain those concepts".



    Thanks

    I explained these concepts in an easy and understandable way.
    I explained these concepts in an easy way to be (better) understood.

    (You explained 3 concepts. So, you focused on 3 different ideas or methods and you elaborated 3 different explanations to enlighten each one.)
