Can you provide an exact example?
Into is used to express division in mathematics:
3 into 24 is 8 = 24 divided by 3 is 8
How many times does three go into twelve? Three goes into twelve four times.
I have classmates who read the following equation in the following way:
3x(1-1/0.1) as three into one minus 1 over 0.1 but I don't know if this into is used because I have "(" or because I have "x"
I will. At least I can pretend now that I have a better english
Where are those classmates of yours from?
Maybe they use "into" because of the distributive propriety of multiplication towards sum, regarding reals. (I mean probably they do that because of the "(" instead of the "x")
Perhaps some kind of "international English" is in use here, regarding math?
