Cantonese Maths

We all have to do some maths sometimes, because we all use money, and money is numbers.

So, here’s how to do some basic maths in Cantonese. No translations – you can work out what each word means from the numbers. 🙂

8乘6等於48
20乘2等於40
8乘8等於64

8減6等於2
20減2等於18
42減24等於18

8加6等於14
20加2等於22
30加8等於38

8除4等於2
20除2等於10
40除4等於10

乘 sing4
減 gaam2
加 gaa1
除 ceoi4
等於* dang2jyu1

*等如 dang2jyu4 is also okay.
