Have a look at “How to look up a math symbol?” for ideas how you can easily find a particular symbol. –  Caramdir Apr 6 '11 at 16:07
You can try detexify, it's very valuable for me, I am also a LaTeX beginner. You just draw on it and it gives you the LaTeX command for the symbol. –  Mobius Pizza Mar 7 '12 at 14:20

The x is done by \times. It must be used in mathmode:
$3\times4$
$N\times N$
