SEE…………….…………SAY
a + b = c…………………a plus b equals c
a - b = c…………….……a minus b equals c
- a – b…………………....minus a minus b
a - (b + c) = d……………a minus the sum of b plus c is equal to d
a - (b - c) = d….…………a minus the difference b minus c is equal to d
a - (b - c) = d….…………a minus the quantity b minus c is equal to d
a x b……………………..a times b or the product of a and b
a * b……………………..a times b or the product of a and b
a • ba…………………… times b or the product of a and b
ab………………………..a times b or the product of a and b
ab………………………..a multiplied by b
ab + c……………………a b plus c
ab – c……………………a b minus c
a (b - c)………………….a times the quantity b minus c
a + (bc)………………….a plus the quantity b times c
a - (b + c)……………..…a minus the quantity b plus c
(a + b) + (c + d)…………the quantity a plus b plus the quantity c plus d
