Coinci[dental]

Zachary: What does "scope" mean?

Me: Have you noticed that suffix in some words, Zach? It means to view or look at. The word microscope can be broken down into micro and scope. Micro means small and scope means to look at. Get it? A microscope allows us to look at small things.

Zachary: Interesting.

Me: Where did you read "scope" Zachary?

Zachary: It was on the toothpaste. It said "plus Scope."
