I wrote this question ( In its earliest usage, did the notation "5 x 3" mean "five groups of three" or "five, placed into each of three groups"? ) without realizing that there is a History of Sciences and Mathematics stackexchange site. I'm wondering if my question is more appropriate for that site, and if so, if a moderator could migrate it for me?
I think a version of this question could fit on MathEducators.stackexchange or HSM.stackexchange, but I don't think it's a good fit in its current form for either. Moderators try to only migrate questions that would be well received on the destination network --- otherwise it feels like one is just adding to the workload of other mods.
I suggest that you
- close/delete your question,
- choose the site where you would want it to be,
- read several questions and answers on that site to get a feel for what things work well in that community, and
- ask a version of your question there.
