    Its just a dot

    My teacher gave me some maths homework and it says. 3.4.5

    What does that mean?

    They are perhaps numbers that you need to do from your book?

    Or... what chapter were you doing today?

    Ah! If that's so, the dots probably means multiplication. Instead of using 'x', the dot is often used.
