The point of this thread is to see if people prefer putting bigger numbers infront of smaller numbers or visa versa.

Bigger numbers first. It's just way easier. I voted without looking at the rest of the post, too.

Looking at it written out, I prefer 3x5, but when assigning values to the variables I prefer to make A the larger variable. So I voted 5x3.

I always do the smaller number first as it seems logical with multiplication. For instance you 4x2 isn't 4 2s, it's double 4, so 2x4 instead. Or 4x3 is triple 4; 3x4 and 3x2 would be double 3; 2x3. By my logic AxB=15 would be triple 5, 3856x2667 would be 2667x3856 in larger numbers for instance.

The Axioms for the Real Numbers tell us that for real numbers, multiplication is commutative.

I voted 5*3, but in order to anser for A & B, you'd need another equation.

Well, being the nerd that I am I went AxB=15 then A=15/B

But definantly bigger first, no idea why just seems right.

I voted 3x5 since I like the way it looks written down, but really, my thought process and when speaking I usually put the bigger number first, since it seems more sensible to multiple five three times than three five times. there's just less work.
#23
Definitely smaller first. It's always easier in my head to do 3 of something than 5 of it.

I tend to put larger numbers first if the number on the right is larger than the other ones. otherwise, for instance in 0.5 x 4 = 2, I put the smaller number first.

3*5


In simple maths, like that, I don't care about the order as much, so I voted for 3*5.

If one of the numbers was a decimal place larger, as in 12*7, then it would be the larger number first. Otherwise, if the numbers are the same length, then I just write them as I see them.

It seems like everyone is saying the same thing, but are interpreting the equation in different ways.

3x5, to me, says "three fives"
Whereas a lot of people are saying
5x3 is like "five, three times"
