4th grade math
posted by Patricia
In helping my 4th grade grandson last night with his math, he had problems like this
93 * 18. I asked what the asterisk meant and he said the teacher said to "figure it out"

Ms. Sue
When we use a keyboard, * means multiply. If we use x, it could be misinterpreted as an unknown.

Kris
Instead of having an "x" for multiplying, the "*" represents multiplication as well.
So 93 times 18. The answer would then be 1,674.
Hope I helped! 
Patricia
Thanks to both of you for replying, now it makes sense.

Ms. Sue
You're welcome. :)
