It indicates Division
There are several valid forms to indicate multiplication, although some are used specificially for functions that are not simple integers.Multiply : the letter x, not as a variable (e.g. 3 x 5 = 15)Dot Product : (e.g. 3 . 5) -- often represented in ASCII by the asterisk (3 * 5)Multiple of variable (e.g. 2x, 3x)Multiplication is also indicated by parentheses and brackets, indicating successive sequences of operations, such as(3x-2)(x-1)[x(x-2)](x-1)

To indicate something you don't understand
That refers to any symbol used to indicate some calculation. Here are some examples:+, -, *, / (for addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) ++, -- (to add or subtract one) (or), && (and)
Some people just use a simple x. Others will use the asterix * . If you looks on your keyboard where the number pad is located, it has the addition subtraction multiplication and division keys marked on the top right four keys.
Because if you did not combine them then you would have only one number: the number 1. You would not have 2 which is 1+1 and similarly no larger positive integers. Nor would you have negative integers which are obtained by subtraction. There would be no other rational numbers which are obtained by division. All in all, arithmetic would be pretty much useless.
NoRestate the question: When using the order of operations to evaluate an expression would you always do multiplication before division?If this is not your question, please clarify and ask the question again. :-)No. Unless parentheses or other grouping symbols indicate otherwise, you do multiplication and division in order from left to right.
There are several words used to indicate subtraction. Minus, deducted, subtracted from, decreased by, less than.
MLCCLXXXImproved answer:(V)CCLXXX or VCCLXXX but with a horizontal line above the numeral V to indicate multiplication by a thousand.Numerals in brackets also indicate multiplication by a thousand.
You can indicate addition by using it's sign "+" or saying add/plus.
A ratio can indicate division. If you have a ratio, x:y, then it can be thought of as x/y.
The minus, negative, or subtraction symbol is derived from a tilde written over "m" that used to be used to indicate subtraction. It might also be a shorthand version of the "m" itself.
(V) and (M) or V and M but with an horizontal line above the numerals to indicate multiplication by a thousand. Numerals in brackets also indicate multiplication by a thousand.
(X) or X but with a bar above it to indicate multiplication by a thousand and numerals in brackets also indicate multiplication by a thousand.
