I think he means: "How about in subtraction, division, multiplication"

5 - 2 = 3

five minus two is three.

6 / 2 = 3

six divided by two is three.

2 x 3 = 6

two times three is six. 4. ## Re: Math in English Originally Posted by blouen I think he means: "How about in subtraction, division, multiplication"

(S)he also can say "equals" instead of "is". 5. ## Re: Math in English Originally Posted by 2006 I think you are right. I was thrown off by the colon and was thinking along another line.
