Should "nine by four" be accepted? Maybe it was just in Ireland but that was generally how we would phrase multiplication.

That might be confusing as to people in Britain that would probably be interpreted as a description of the size of a shape.

Well, if "maths" was accepted earlier, then I don't see why not...

Isn't "nine into four" acceptable?

Doesn't "into" imply division, not multiplication?

I would interpret it as division as well.

3 goes into 12 4 times (i.e. 12 / 3 = 4, a division problem).

Exactly! I'm surprised that it means multiplication in some places; I guess "into" must have a different connotation elsewhere.

That is worth knowing! In Britain "into" can only mean division.

this accepted 9 - 4 for me

May 6, 2016

It should accept 9 * 4 which is common and standard mathematical notation for IT/programmation/computers, but it reports a typo...

This is a language course not a programming one.
