write the following as a mathematical expression, use x for a number. The product of a number and six

The product of 6 and 2 is 6*2
The product of 6 and x is 6*x.
In algebra, the multiplication sign is omitted when one of the multiplicands is a number and the other is a variable, thus we write 6x instead of 6*x.
