X - X

X the 24th letter of our alphabet. Just a simple letter but with many uses.....

In mathematics can be used for a unknown value like in algebra.

It can signify multiplication such as 4 x 5 = 20

Just as in the use of mathematics of the unknown x-rays are so called because their discoverer did not know what they were.

Those of you born after 1981 (the baby boom) are know as Generation X

Kisses and hugs


and this signifies to sign here.

X.......... the Roman numeral for 10

If you are a bowler you want to see lots of x's on your score sheet signifying strikes!

In sign language this is the sign for debt...
Index finger into your palm and if that debt is paid in full............ You draw a  X in your palm as canceled.

and everyone knows that X marks the spot!
