    Re: calculation

    Six plus four equals ten, six minus four equals two, six times four equals twenty four, and six divided by four ( or six fourths) equals one point five.

    Re: calculation

    You usually write 1.5 (not 1,5), don't you?
    Thank you

    Re: calculation

    In Britain, a radix point separator is being marked by a dot, so is in The United States.
    That's why you say ''one POINT five''.
    It differs, depending in which country you are. You come from Italy, and there a comma marks a radix point.

    All the best!
