When I was taking French in high school thirty years ago, "et" was acceptable.
Forgot to mention, too, that when I lived in France for several months in the '90s, either worked, and I heard French people use both.
I'm wondering the same thing. One of my textbooks doesn't even offer the "plus" option... just "deux et deux font quatre."
double post, please delete this
"You would rather say "2 plus 2 makes/equals four" and not "2 and 2 makes/equals four""
I can very much remember doing repetitions of 2 and 2 etc.. although agree that was only at a pretty elementary level!
