How do you solve multiplication facts?

Solving multiplication equations. When solving multiplication equations, they will have this form: ax = c or bx = d, or cx = f, etc. Recall that ax + b = c is a linear equation. Thus, the equation ax = c is a linear equation with b = 0. You can also solve ax = c in one step.
