we're asked to multiply 65 times 1 so literally we just need to multiply 65 and we could write it as a time sign like that or we could write it as a dot like that but this means 65 times 1 and there's two ways to interpret interpret this you could view this as the number 65 one time or you could view this as the number 165 times all added up but either way if you mul if you have 165 this is literally just going to be 65 anything times 1 is going to be that anything whatever this is whatever this is times 1 is going to be that same thing again if I have if I have you could think of well if I had just some kind of placeholder here times 1 times 1 and I can even write it as the time symbol times 1 that's going to be that same placeholder that's going to be that same placeholder so if I have 3 times 1 I'm going to get 3 if I have if I have 5 times 1 I'm going to get 5 because it's literally all this is saying is 5 1 time if I get if I put I don't know 157 times 1 that'll be 157 I think you get the idea
