I’m trying to mentally summarize the names of the operands for basic operations. I’ve got this so far:
- Addition: Augend + Addend = Sum.
- Subtraction: Minuend – Subtrahend = Difference.
- Multiplication: Multiplicand × Multiplier = Product. Generally, operands are called factors.
- Division: Dividend ÷ Divisor = Quotient.
- Modulation: Dividend % Divisor = Remainder.
- Exponentiation: Base ^ Exponent = ___.
- Finding roots: Degree √ Radicand = Root.
- I’ve heard addend used generally for addition operands. Is that correct formal usage?
- Do subtraction and division lack general names for their operands because they are not commutative? Or am I just ignorant of them?
- Is the base the same as a mantissa?
- Is there a formal name for the result of exponentiation?
- Is there a formal name for the operation of finding the nth root?
- Am I missing anything else?
Found this table on Wikipedia. It has all the formal names for those operations plus logarithm.
