What Does XA K Mean?

(¿Que Significa XA K?)

XA K means "para que." ("Para" means "why" in English.)

In Spanish, the letter X represents "por" (for), which is similar to "para" (another word that means for).

"Por" is the word for "times" as in "two times two" (or "dos por dos"), which is the reason X means "por." The a is added to differentiate "para" from "por."
