# Question #beea2

Daniel made 100$x$ dollars this summer.
Lets say $x$ equals...5!
So now, we need to multiply 5 and 100 which gives us 500. So that's why we got 100$x$! Whenever you multiply a variable (in this case, $x$) with a number, you put the variable next to the 100! I hope thta helps you! Yeah, I know, this is a pretty short answer! My source is my mind!
