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
