    Thanks.

    Similar questions:

    1. What about "=" in "x = y"? "x equals y" or "x equal y"??

    2. Can I read "" as "plus minus"?

    3. "What about "-1"? "minus one" or "negative one"?

    1. Equals
    2. I would only say plus OR minus, but I can't speak for the entire population
    3. Either one
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
