Well, there are simple symbols, such as a+b, ab, a×b, a÷b
But, there are also other symbols
For example, there is a symbol for difference used in some equations y. For instance xy is the same as x2x1y2x1
There is also a symbol for sum n=010n
This is the symbol for summing a function of n denoted as a capital sigma. The bottom number denoted as n is the starting number. The top number is the ending number. You then plug in n for each number up to 10 and add them up.
n=110n is the symbol for product denoted as a capital pi. In this case, you have the same rules for summing apply to products, but you multiply instead of add.
