Hi Joseph,

Assuming you're using 'x' to mean multiplication (rather than using it as a variable), and assuming you're using '_' to mean a blank to fill in, your question of:

2x_=(2x5)+(2x1)

can be reduced to:

2 x _ = 10 + 2

2 x _ = 12

So, what times 2 equals 12?

If that's not what you're asking you may want to clarify your question. For instance, if you're using x as a variable and the number after x is supposed to be an exponent, use the superscript button at the top of the text window to create the exponent.
The superscript button is the one labeled 'x

^{2}', next to the button labeled 'Ω'. Also make sure you clarify what you mean by the underscore.
