whats 2*2

That means 2 times 2.  On this board, an asterisk is sometimes used as a multiplication symbol, especially where using an x as the multiplication symbol could get confused with an "x" used to represent an unknown in an equation.

Yes, but in $$\LaTeX$$, you can use $$\times$$or \times.

People do mostly avoid using an x though.

Some people use a dot $$\cdot$$ (\cdot in latex) but if you write that out, you might mistake it for a decimal point.  So another alternate solution could be parentheses.

Example(s):

$$2(2)\text{ instead of }2\cdot 2 \text{ or } 2\times 2$$

Okay why am I writing a whole explanation lol.
