I want to make signs in Spanish for my elementary class that say addend + addend = sum, Subtrahend-minuend = difference muliplicand X multiplier = product, dividend divided by divisor = quotient but I can't seem to find some of the words anywhere. Mil gracias a quien me puede ayudar con esta traducción.

minuendo - (menos) sustraendo= resto o diferencia
multiplicando/factor x (por) multiplicando/factor= producto
Dividendo dividido por divisor= cociente

Mexico / Español
sumando + sumado = suma (or) total
the + signal is called "más"

minuend-substrahend = difference
minuendo - sustraendo = difference
the "-" signal is called "menos"

muliplicand X multiplier = product
the X signal is called "por"

dividend divided by divisor = quotient b
dividendo / divisor = cociente
the / signal is called "entre"

Note: I changed the order of the minuend and substrahend because if I remember well the "first" number is the minuend,.... don'tr trust me so much, I learnt that soooooooooooo many many years ago

For the sake of the best understanding, let me add some different expresion that is also said in Argentina:

dividend divided by divisor = quotient b
dividendo / divisor = cociente
the / sign is called "entre" (en Argentina en cambio se dice "sobre" o "dividido", ejemplo 4/5 es: 4 divido 5 o tambien 4 sobre 5) )

Nota: no tengo tildes en este teclado, perdon.
