## Basic Math Symbols

### What are the Math Symbols?

Mathematics employs a range of symbols for operations, relations, and quantities, forming a concise and universal language. Key symbols include "+," "−" for addition and subtraction, "∫" for integration, and "Σ" for summation, playing a crucial role in accurately expressing mathematical ideas.

### Basic Math Symbols:

Fundamental Math symbols include "+", "-", "*", and "/". The addition symbol "+" combines two numbers, while "-" represents finding the difference between two numbers to symbolize subtraction. The multiplication symbol "" signifies repeated addition, and "/" denotes division, the process of sharing or splitting quantities. These basic symbols form the building blocks for more intricate mathematical expressions.
