This is a video tutorial in the Education category where you are going to learn how to write equations in preAlgebra. Write an equation that represents the following sentence and then solve the equation. The product of n and 6 is 12. That's n multiplied by 6 or 6n = 12. We want to solve our equation for n. That is we want to get n all by itself on the left hand side. Since n is multiplied by 6, we got to divide both sides by 6. So, we get 6n/6 = 12/6. On the left hand side of the equation, 6 and 6 cancel each other out. We now get n = 12/6. 12 divided by 6 is 2. So, the solution is n = 2.
