Left side should equal right side.

5x12= (5x1) + (3x4) could be one answer

10x6= (1x10) + (2x3)

10x6= (2x5) + (1x6)

they can have several answers as long as the left side of the  = the right side

I believe you need to fill in 2 numbers that together = 12

5 x 12 = (5 x 2) + (5 x 10)    this will balance the equation as

5 x 12= 60   |   5 x 2 = 10 and 5 x 10 = 50    |   10 + 50 = 60

 He has to figure out what two math facts added together equal the total on the left side of the equal sign.

Several of hte above answers are not what the skill is looking for.  It is using the break apart method, so the same first number must be in both of the parentheses and then you ''break apart" the 2nd number into a sum that makes it easier to calculate

5 x 12 =(5x10) + (5x2)

10 x 6 = (10 x 5) + (10 x 1)

5 x 12 = (5 x 6) + (5 X 6 )   (both sides equal 60)

10 x 6 = (3 X 10) + (3 X 10)  (both sides equal 60)

8 x 7 = (2 X 14 ) + (2 X 14)  (both sides equal 56)

6 X 8 = (12 X 2) + (12 X 2)  (both sides equal 48)
