What does 13 times h equal?
13 x y = (Put the number here)

- anonymous

thats were im haveing issues what h means

- Compassionate

h is a variable. Basically, h can be any number. For example,
13 x h = 103
Just replace h with any number you want
13 x 1 = 103
13 = 103, this is false because 13 does not equal 103.

You're having troubles with letters, right?

Let me know once you've viewed those links and if you understand or not.

ok the one that i was wondering about thirteen multiplied by h is one hundred and four can u explain that one

- Compassionate

Okay, so lets focus on the first part of this word problem.
It's saying thirteen is being multiplied by h. Basically, h is a variable. H can be any number, we don't know what h is currently, but we do know it's being multiplied by h.
So, "Thirteen multiplied by h," would be: 13 x h <--
Now this is equal to 104.
13 x h = 104 <-- Because the equation tells us 13 times h is equal to 104.

- anonymous

how do you come up with h is equal to 104 ?

- Compassionate

Because, " thirteen multiplied by h is EQUAL TO ONE HUNDRED AND FOUR."

- anonymous

so do i have to find a number that is multiplied by 13 to make 104

- Compassionate

Yes! :D You're getting it!

- Compassionate

13 x h = 104
13 x 1 = 13 <-- this is not 104
13 x 2 = 26 <-- this is not 104.

- anonymous

ok so would it be 8

- Compassionate

Yes! Because 13 x 8 = 104!!! :D

- anonymous

because 13 x 8 1s 104

- Compassionate

Mhm. You see, it's easy!
Try this one:
5 x y = 25

- anonymous

ok 5x5=25

- Compassionate

Yes! So y is just any number that can be multiplied by 5 to equal 25.

- anonymous

ok here is one y+(-6)=-9

- Compassionate

Do you know the first step?

- anonymous

what is the - signs for

- anonymous

is the y any number?

- Compassionate

Okay. You need to know what pemdas is. Watch this video.
