Write an expression for the product of five and 𝑑.

Starting with what we know, we know that we have five and 𝑑, and that we want the product of five and 𝑑. The product is the result of multiplying two values together. The product of five and 𝑑 would be five times 𝑑. However, when we work with variables, we don’t usually add the multiplication symbol, we just write the five and the 𝑑 next to each other, and we know that means multiplication.

The expression for the product of five and 𝑑 is five 𝑑.
