How to describe dimensions?

How do you describe dimensions in Turkish?

For instance in english you might say that a piece of paper is "eight by ten inches." But it could be written as "8x10 inches"

If I see "8x10" in Turkish, how do I read that out loud?

    I would say "Sekize on" for 8x10.

    you would use the suffix for "to" after the first number, then just say the second number as is.

    So that's e , a, ye, ya (depending on the vowel and ending consonant of the number you're using the suffix on)

    for example
    1x11 bire onbir
    9x11 dokuza onbir
    2x11 ikiye onbir
    6x11 altiya onbir
