This really is spectrum analyser territory however the modern DSO with good FFT can identify the individual signals and express them in amplitude.
Thanks for the post.That leads to a lot of interesting material.

FWIW I used OS for o scope because I heard it that way in a video.

I'm going to ask a related question in a new thread so it's easier to find in a search.

Thank you too all who posted!

A lot of the stuff on YouTube from so called experts is crap. Of the 115 definitions I found for OS, oscilloscope wasn't one of them. Operating System was the most common meaning and that's what I read it as even when it was used in your context, I kept thinking operating system.
 
Do some research on Fourier theory. and the FFT (Fast Fourier Transform)
An Oscilloscope displays signals in the time domain.
A spectrum analyzer, displays signals in the frequency domain.

A 2-channel scope usually has an ADD function and an Invert function. This allows one to do pseudo-differential measurements as well as adding and subtracting two signals.
