2x × 6x = ?
What is 2x times 6x?

 Here we will do more than give you the solution to 2x × 6x. We will also explain and teach you how we came up with the answer, so you can understand it and solve similar problems in the future without help. In this problem, 2 and 6 are the coefficients and two Xs are the variables. When a coefficient is next to a variable there is an invisible multiplication sign. So you could rewrite the problem as follows: 2 × x × 6 × x = So now you can multiply what are the same. You can multiply the coefficients together and the x variables together as follows: 2 × 6 = 12 x × x = x2 Then you put the answers together and make the multiplication sign invisible again to get the following answer: 2x × 6x = 12x2 Do you think you can do it on your own now?

Also x with no exponent is the same as x1.Here are some problems with answers that you should know based on what you learned on this page: 2x × 6x2 = 12x3 2x × 6x3 = 12x4 2x × 6x4 = 12x5 2x2 × 6x = 12x3 2x2 × 6x2 = 12x4 2x2 × 6x3 = 12x5 X times X Calculator For other numbers, go here for our popular "X times X Calculator.
