    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.

    I think you are right. I was thrown off by the colon and was thinking along another line.
    (S)he also can say "equals" instead of "is".
