IN MATH: 1. conj. a signal that another piece of information is about to be given. 2. v. often a colloquial expression for the words "and also add."

 See: Writing One Operation Equations, Expressions, Statements -- The use of "and" and "of," instructions, and examples. Algebra Notes:

EX. Her teacher complained when Tildi asked, "What's 5x and 3x?" but meant "What's the sum of 5x and 3x?"

Tildi countered with, "Since 4.5 is read as four and five-tenths, and since 4 ¼ is four and a quarter, then 5x and 3x must mean the sum of 5x and 3x. That's what I meant. I asked for the sum correctly."

The teacher had to agree.

IN ENGLISH: conj. also, in addition.

APPLICATION: See list 10 and 200.

1. The product of 5 and 1.7 is decreased by the sum of .75 and .6. What's the result?
