A shorthand English word for
3 multiplied by 4 is:
3 times 4
I am aware that this comes from spoken language as in "we have 3 four times", a version I know from my native language as well. I would like to investigate this word rather than the more formal
multiplied by. I am curious as to how the word
times may be conjugated in tenses and used in other types of sentence constructions while still keeping it's mathematical meaning.
Can I for example say sentences like the following?
- 3 was timed with 4.
- I will time 3 and 4.
- The times-symbol (or time-symbol or timing-symbol?) is a dot.
