    To say "+" or "addition" in Spanish we use the word "más."  To say "-" or "subtract" in Spanish we use the word "menos." To say "=" or "equals" in Spanish we use the word "es." Now that you know your numbers 1-10 in Spanish, you can complete some simple math flashcards to practice addition, subtraction, and your numbers in Spanish. For example to say the problem 10-1=9, you would say "Diez menos uno es nueve." Record yourself reading and answering the following flashcards in Spanish.
