 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
What is the symbol for multiplication?
 A X B * C # D /
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -Use the multiplication sign (×), not the letter x, to indicate the mathematical operation.

Detailed explanation-2: -Presumably, the asterisk was chosen-presumably because it was the non-alphanumeric symbol that most-closely resembled the customary symbol that denoted multiplication, whereas the letter X could not be used, since FORTRAN used letters of the alphabet for symbolic variable names of variables and unknowns.

Detailed explanation-3: -These symbols have the same meaning; commonly × is used to mean multiplication when handwritten or used on a calculator 2 × 2, for example. The symbol * is used in spreadsheets and other computer applications to indicate a multiplication, although * does have other more complex meanings in mathematics.

Detailed explanation-4: -Multiply numbers in a cell To do this task, use the * (asterisk) arithmetic operator. For example, if you type =5*10 in a cell, the cell displays the result, 50.

Detailed explanation-5: -You can also use the keyboard shortcut to insert the multiplication sign. Simply press 00d7 and then “ALT+X” immediately to insert the symbol.
