I am making a workflow that kicks off an approval task to a specified user depending on which folder the file is in. Let's say I have 5 different folders so there are 5 logical checks and each one has an approval task under it. Every time those new approval tasks were added the line read Start Approval(x) process on Current Item with these users where x was a growing number.

Also on the Site Settings/Site Content Types 5 approval content types were created. The first being just Approval then the next being Approval _x1234_2_x5678_

Why can I not just add one standard approval task and change the "these users" part only? Is SharePoint saying since each task goes to a different person it is essentially a different content type because of that?
