Bonjour Susan ! Actually I did a bit of research, and the version recommended by the Académie Française, the Littré dictionary and other reliable sources is« Deux multiplié par cinq *égale* dix. » (rather than « … égalent …»). Thanks to you, I've now updated the lesson accordingly. Merci et à bientôt !
