    Other symbols are license plates, the hashtag (#) symbol and company symbols like the M for McDonalds. In math we use +, -, and = symbols. In science if you are shopping for plants or flowers you can look at the symbol on the tag to see if it does best with full sun or full shade. Also in science we use symbols to tell the weather, like a sun for a sunny day, or a cloud if it is a cloudy day.

    Some other symbols are on a map, on a keyboard and on the dashboard of a car.

    In math, add, subtract, multiply and divide etc are symbols. In science there are symbols for different elements and symbols to warn if chemicals are dangerous.

    In L.A. some other languages use symbols for their letters like Japan for example.
