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...

3x^{10}=2x^{10}+1x^{?}

?=10

3x^{10}=2x^{10}+1x^{10}

x^{10} is a single unit.

It is as single as x.

Just as 2x+x=3x, so too does 2x^{10}+1x^{10}=3x^{10}

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