00:00:01.440 --> 00:00:08.410
Let a square equal three, so a square multiplied by two equals six.
00:00:09.360 --> 00:00:15.830
What number does a triangle equal if four multiplied by a triangle equals 12?
00:00:17.940 --> 00:00:21.680
In this problem, some of the numbers have been replaced by shapes.
00:00:21.830 --> 00:00:23.600
And each shape has a value.
00:00:24.750 --> 00:00:27.310
We’re told that the square is worth three.
00:00:28.480 --> 00:00:37.970
So we know that in the calculation, square multiplied by two, we know the answer is going to be six because the square is worth three.
00:00:38.400 --> 00:00:40.390
And three times two is six.
00:00:41.520 --> 00:00:43.130
Let’s look at the rest of the problem.
00:00:43.990 --> 00:00:50.750
What number does a triangle equal if four multiplied by a triangle equals 12?
00:00:51.920 --> 00:00:55.490
Once again, we’re given a shape that represents a value.
00:00:56.120 --> 00:00:57.870
This time, it’s a triangle.
00:00:59.060 --> 00:01:03.180
Four multiplied by a triangle equals 12.
00:01:05.030 --> 00:01:07.790
What do we multiply four by to get 12?
00:01:09.220 --> 00:01:12.450
Four multiplied by three equals 12.
00:01:14.010 --> 00:01:17.790
And so the number that the triangle equals is three.
