How do you read a prop number?

Propeller Sizes are given in a set of numbers, e.g. 13×17 or 19×23 usually labeled on the propeller. The first number is the Diameter (width of the circle of the blades) and the second is the Pitch (theoretical travel distance of the angled blades in one revolution). Two other design features include Rake and Cup.
