Do you like math? Math has 4 basic parts. Math can help you in the future.

Math-SymbolsThe basic step is addition. If you have 3 spoons and 1 fork, you add them up and count how much cutlery you have. (3 + 1 = 4).

The next step is subtraction. Subtraction is the opposite of addition.  If you have 5 cookies and you ate 2 you would have 3 left over. (5 – 2 = 3).

The third step is multiplication. If you need three groups of soccer balls, count how many soccer balls you have. (3 x 2 = 6).

The fourth step is Division. Division is the opposite of multiplication. If you have 10 fries, then you want half the amount of fries, take 5 fries away. (10 ÷ 2 = 5).

Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are 4 basic steps in math. Math can help you in the future.
