For example this one.                                   You might think:
2  x  3 = 6      and                 x          =

So the final answer is:        6   +        =   6                 However this is WRONG!

Let's look at the next slide for a sec to see what is wrong with the first method!

#### Slide 33 -Slide

For example this one.                                   You might think:
2  x  3 = 6      and                 x          =

So the final answer is:        6   +        =   6                 However this is WRONG!
What has been FORGOTTEN here is this:  2 x       and           x 3   !
