Have you ever taken a maths lesson in English? Do you know the right vocabulary to talk about mathematics?

Let's take a look at some basic math terms:

Two **plus** two is four. (2+2=4)

Five **add** five is ten. (5+5=10)

Six **minus** two is four (6-2=4)

Ten **subtract** five is five (10-5=5) Nine take away eight is one (9-8=1)

Eight **take away three** is five (8-3=5)

Twenty-five **percent** of eight is two.

The unemployment rate in the USA is six **percent**.

A number less than one that is written as one or more numbers after a decimal point:

10**.1**

4**.345**

Three **times** three is nine (3x3=9)

**Multiply** five by five.

Four **multiplied by** two is eight (4x2=8)

**Divide** 8 by 2.

Ten **divided by** two is five (10÷2=5)

Five **plus** five equals ten (5+5=10)

Three times three **is** nine (3x3=9)

**Now choose the missing maths vocabulary to complete these simple problems**:

**1) Ten ___ ten equals twenty.****2) Five ___ five is zero.****3) Twenty ___ by five is four.****4) Three ___ four is twelve.****5) Six __ two is eight.****6) Twelve ___ by four equals three.****7) Ten ___ of a hundred is ten.**
