The plus sign does adding and the minus sign does subtraction in Excel: =A10+B2 =A2-50 The * is used for multiplication. The / is used for division: =A2*A3 =A6/40
A plus sign, a minus sign and a star, which is used for multiplication.
There are many signs used in Excel. Three of them are the plus sign (+), the minus sign (-) and the multiplication sign (*).
In Excel, you use the asterisk, "*". As to the name, I would just call it the "multiplication sign".

Purely a matter of convenience. 'x' is an acceptable character that means "multiplied by", and it appears on the keyboard, whereas the regular multiplication sign doesn't. Well . . . to be perfectly honest, we don't even know what a "regular multiplication sign" is. ======================================== Another contributor agreed: I was just going to ask that, what is a regular multiplication sign? For 50 years I have been using x I think he means when he says regular multiplication sign he means the dot that is used for algebra because x is a variable. P.S. I just learned about scientific notation and asked my teacher the same question. She didn't know.
Robert Recorde, who designed the equals sign, introduced plus and minus in 1557. Brahmagupta was an Indian mathematician who invented the multiplication sign around the 19th century. Johann Rahn first used the division sign in his book Teutshe algebra in 1659.
Multiplication is used to figure out large sums of numbers.
It depends how its used, it could be used as the multiplication sign or it could be used simply as a variable and u need to solve what it is equal to. It has many meanings.
To write repeated multiplication in an exponential notation, you should write the number that has to be multiplied as the base. Count the number of times that the number is used.
so when you find your answer you can check it by using multiplication.
it can be used to write a multiplication sentence by flipping the numbers around
Yes. Addition naturally comes first. And it is used in double digit multiplication too. However, for memorizing times tables, being proficient in addition doesn't matter. Memorization may be easier at younger ages than adding, requiring higher brain functions perhaps. Laurie C. (Springdale, AR Elementary Teacher)
in school, i used multiplication in my planner,a print out or a calculator to help me know it
All the properties of multiplication may be used with money.
Identity property of Multiplication c:
Use the lower case "x". Example: axb=abSome mathematicians would also accept a period (.). Example: a.b=ab In some computer program an asterix (*) is used to shoe multiplication. Example: a*b=ab
A number multiplied by its complex conjugate will result in a real number. Also, adding a number to its conjugate will result in a real number. But typically the multiplication is what is used.
The plus sign, +, is used to add two numbers together. It is one of the four basic arithmetic operations along with:Subtract, -Multiplication, x or *Division, / or ÷
Nope! place value is a numeric word! Place value can be used in multiplication but it's not a multiplication word!
an X or *
On a keyboard, the division sign often used in schools ( ÷ ) is not typically present, instead the solidus or 'forward slash' ( / ) should be used.
