数学作业要在3分钟之内完成90道5以内的加减法题

I can understand it as:

The Math homework (you) must complete 90 questions of addition and subtraction within 3 minutes under 5. (what the heck?)

What does 5以内 mean in this sentence?

  • You understand It right, because 5以内 absolutely make no sense, and can't put anywhere to make It a sense. – Tokenyet Feb 29 at 9:10

    @Tokenyet It does make sense indeed. – dan Feb 29 at 12:46
  • @dan, I don't want to argue, but I'm Chinese, If really spoke like that, no one know what's meaning... You might be a real Chinese than me :P At least, my area won't say like that. – Tokenyet Feb 29 at 13:16
  • @Tokenyet Interesting. 完成90道5以内的加减法 is a normal phrasing. May I know what area you are in? – dan Feb 29 at 13:51

5以内 is an arithmetic exercise for teaching kindergarten children.

It means questions that only involves positive numbers no larger than 5. For example, asking questions like "2+2=?" or "4-3=?".

Read the phrase as this: 90道 [5以内的] [加减法] 题

5以内的 modifies 加减法. 5以内的加减法 as a whole modifies 题.

To actually translate it, I went to the link provided by @Wayne Cheah. First of all, Although I never speak like that, the actual meaning is:

The Math homework (you) must complete 90 questions within 3 minutes, and the math is about addition and subtraction in the range 0~5.

People come from different area would say different sentense, for example, in my area:

要在3分钟之内完成90道,加减和为0~5的加减法数学题

Hope this helps.

  • I don't actually understand "加减和为0~5的加减法数学题". It's not a standard/normal expression. – dan Feb 29 at 13:49
  • @dan, 和 means 总和, just like you told me, It does make sense indeed. You just confused as me before. To prevent arguing about area-specified issue, I just stop here :P – Tokenyet Feb 29 at 13:54
  • I'm sorry to bother you again. but there is still a problem in your phrase 加减和为0~5的加减法数学题. 加减和 is illogical because 和 (as you explained as 总和) is only for addition, but not for subtraction. 减 is 差. 加减和 is wrong. That's why I couldn't understand it at my first read of it. – dan Feb 29 at 14:26
  • 总和 is total not for sum generally (area), but If you really focus on the narrow way, yes, that's confused If you think deeply. But in mathematical, 1 + (-1) is also making sense If you want to discuss in math, so I think don't be too serious on language :P – Tokenyet Feb 29 at 14:31
  • 五以内的加减法 does not mean 加减和为0~5的加减法. 4+2=? is a valid question for the former but not the latter. It is used to teach addition and subtraction for single-digit numbers as a foundation to teach the operations resulting in higher-magnitude numbers. – zhantongz Feb 29 at 15:26
