Today we’re going to talk about some basic math vocabulary. This vocabulary is very simple but can come in handy if you’re going to study abroad or if you just want to learn more English.
The first set of words were going to talk about are operations.
The most common operations are addition, subtraction,
multiplication and division, and those are what we’ll talk about today.
Addition is when you add two numbers together. This is called a plus sign. So for example, 4 plus 5 equals 9 or if I have 4 and add 5 I get 9.
加法就是两个数相加。这叫做加号。例如，4 + 5 = 9，或者说我有4，再加5，得到9。
Subtraction is when you subtract one number from another number. This is called a minus sign. So for example 6 minus 4 equals 2 or if I have 6 and take away 4 I get 2.
减法就是用一个数减去另一个数。这叫做减号。例如，6 – 4 = 2，如果我有6，拿走4，得到2。
Multiplication is when you multiply one number by another number. For example 4 times 3 equals 12 or
if I multiply 4 by 3 I get 12.
Division is when you divide one number by another
number. For example 12 divided by 2 equals 6 or if I divide 12 by 2 I get 6.
Hopefully this has helped you it’s very basic English but teachers don’t talk about this vocabulary very often. Thank you for watching.
