De basis van het rekenen

A brief summary of the arithmetics in Dutch. Based on nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rekenen and examples from vandale.nl

machtsverheffen – raise to the power
worteltrekken – extraction of the root(s)

vermenigvuldigen – multiply
delen – divide
optellen – add
aftrekken – subtract


Examples:

  • honderd delen door tien – divide one hundred by ten
  • vermenigvuldig dat getal met 8 – multiply that number by 8
  • twee getallen (bij elkaar) optellen – add up two numbers
  • als je acht van veertien aftrekt houd je zes over – if you take eight from fourteen you have six left
