# "Üçkerebeş"

## Translation:Three times five

March 24, 2015

This has a mathematical connotation correct?

Yes, correct.

Does kere mean times as in "multiplied by" in addition to times as in "it happened 4 times"?

Both. It's used in the exact same way you would use "time/times" in English.

Yep. "Dört kere oldu" = It's happened four times. "Kez" is also used in that way and is probably slightly preferable.

Defa, kere, kez, sefer, what is the difference

You can only use 'kere' in multiplication but other than they are almost interchangable.

Kere, defa, kez, and sefer can all be used to refer to a number of times something occurs (frequency). But of those 4 options, only kere can be used for multiplication.

Do I understand correctly?

Yes, that's the way it is.

I didn't mean in multiplication. What's the difference in general

They are interchangable in general.

Can you give me examples ?

Why "3×5" as numbers are not accepted?

Neither does 3 * 5

Could this have a non-mathematical meaning (for example "555" in a phone number)?

Does "kere" always go between the two numbers?

What is the equivalent for more than two numbers (for example how would you translate "the product of two, three and five" into Turkish)?

You wouldn't use this in a phone number.

It doesn't have to go between two numbers(Topa üç kere vurdum-I hit the ball three times).

And it would be translated as ''iki, üç ve beşin çarpımı''.

Hi everyone, i am learning Turkish and Spanish both, in Spanish they have given small small stories , to read after lessons, it very helpful, it possible for Turkish as well or please suggest some site

Is this mean "3x5"?

Yes, it is.

So is "kere" used only for mathematical purpose?

No, you can also use it in daily contexts.

We specifically use çarpı for mathematical purposes but kere can also be used informally in math.

Üç çarpı beş (mathematical) -> Üç kere beş (daily)

What is prounciation of çarpi

If this is multiplication, why is 3x5 STILL not an option as a correct answer???

not mathematical. Three times like five ...

Same thing

for the answer, i typed in '3 x 5' and it was marked wrong.

I typed 3 x 5 and it came out wrong.. why??
