You add + You subtract  You multiply X You divide /
and then of course, there are fractions!!!!

But when we are speaking we don �t generally say �five multiplied by eighteen �  it �s much more normal to say �five times eighteen �. I don �t know why, though!

My students tended to say 5 times 18 divided to four! I dont know why? Maybe it is
because of the native language interference!!
Thanks again for your contribution dear libertybelle and Ishorton99,
Cem :)
