# What is Y multiplied by the product of 8 and x?

This would be written as $y \left(8 x\right)$.
This can't be solved because there are two variables, but it can be written as $y \left(8 x\right)$. According to the order of operations, anything in parentheses should be solved first, and then multiplied.
To solve this, one would multiply 8 by $x$, and multiply their product by $y$.
