    Let's figure it out with numbers. If the cost is $12 per hour, how much do you pay in 1 hour?

    It costs $12 per hour to rent a canoe. You want the canoe for exactly one hour. How much will it cost you for 1 hour?

    Correct. Now let's say you want to rent he canoe for 2 hours, not just 1 hour. How much will it cost for 2 hours? The cost is still $12 per hour, but you want 2 hours not 1. How much will the 2 hours cost?

    Great. So far we have: Renting for 1 hour: 12 * 1 = 12 Renting for 2 hours: 12 * 2 = 24 How about if you want to rent for 3 hours?

    Then it will be 12*3=36

    Exactly. Notice that in each case, we multiply the price per hour, $12, by the number of hours. If we want 5 hours, it's 12 * 5 For 10 hours it's 12 * 10 What if you want it for h hours?
