# 3x10=(2x10)+(1x_)

What is the factor

Was x meant as a symbol for multiplication or did you mean to write x as a factor with the exponent of 10 (x^10)?
Sorry..It was meant for multiplication

3*10 = 2*10 + 1*10

Just like 3a = 2a + 1a

3x10=(2x10)+(1x?)
The first step is to multiply to solve inside the parenthesis

3x10=(2x10)+(1x?)
30 =  (20) + (1x?)

Next subtract 20 from both sides

30-20=20-20+(1x?)

10=1x?

Any number multiplied by 1 is itself therefore the answer is 10

?=10

Hi Shannon;
3x10=(2x10)+(1x_)
What I believe this is...

3x10=2x10+1x?
?=10
3x10=2x10+1x10

x10 is a single unit.
It is as single as x.
Just as 2x+x=3x, so too does 2x10+1x10=3x10

If I have incorrectly understood the question, please let me know.
