  2. A. You basically add two numbers together to get 60. So it's basically __ + __ = 60, and you can put in any two numbers that equal 60 when added.
    B. It's almost the same as what I said for the first problem, except it's __ x __ = 60, so you find two numbers that equal 60 when multiplied.
    C. For this problem, you take the two numbers you got for problem B, so do __ x __ = 60, but use the method you got for problem A also on one of the factors, so (__ + __) x __ = 60.

    When you're done, you should check your work by plugging it into a calculator and see if it equals 60.

  3. So would A be something like 56+4? And B would be 10x6. I believe C would be something like (5+5) x 6 = 60.
    Am I correct?

  4. C would be 6(5+5) because of you put "(" by a lonely number it means x
