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"

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

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! 
Thanks to both of you for replying, now it makes sense.

You're welcome. :)
