Being able to make simple calculations in French is important too. Here's how to do it!
Look at these examples:
Additions and subtractions in French
We use plus (plus) and moins (minus), and then égal (equal).
Note that in French we usually use the adjective égal (which refers to the mathematical sign =) in these phrases.
You can also use the verb égaler (to equal) or even faire:
Note that the preferred form for égaler (Académie Française...) is the singular égale, where we'll use the plural font for faire.
Multiplications in French
We can use fois (times) or multiplié par (multiplied by).
Divisions in French
We use divisé par (divided by).
