I probably learned this a hundred times but I always forget! Help!

I understand your situation.

It is just the alphabet ‘x’ or the word ‘times’ or a capital alphabet ‘X’

Just follow the examples:

3x times 2x = 3a X 2a = 6a^2

3x times 2x = 3b X 2b = 6b^2

3x times 2x = 3c X 2c = 6c^2

3x times 2x = 3d X 2d = 6d^2

And your answer is

3x times 2x = 3x X 2x = 6x^2

Thank you.

First multiply the coefficients: 3*2 = 6

Now multiply the variables: x * x = x^2

6x^2

6x. Just multiply the two numbers and put the x next to it.

Veerryyy simple.

3x*2x = (3*2)*(x*x) = 6x^2
