## Carry the one

Hi. I was wondering what does "carry the one" mean? Some guy was doing the math and said "carry the one, no, carry the threes". Does it mean divison by three or something like that?

No, in multiplication, or other operations, when you end up trying to add two one-digit numbers in a column, such as 5 and 7, you get a two digit number, 12, so you write the 2 below and "carry" the 1 to the next higher column and add it there. It's called carrying the one.

## Re: Carry the one

Ok, thanks, mate. I've got one more question (well, two). The guy is talking about the direction to a path and he says "out the front, left at the well". Does it mean that he wants me to take the front doors and turn left at the well?

How do we ask if as well is two words?

Can someone help me out? ^^

In the first case, you're right. Out the door and to the left, that's fine.

In the second, you can always choose a noun, such as expression or phrase: "Is the phrase 'as well' one or two words?"
