    well would it not be one? 6x1=product
    product is the answer of a multiplication so the correct answer would be one

    Well then the product would be 6! This is the answer (product).
    The other factor, or missing number as far as I can see would be 1.
    factor  × factor = product
      6       ×      1   =    6

    Thanks, Keepitnatural and moderndays - you both are correct!

    So what Steve needs to do is find a missing factor. He knows one factor and the product, so we can draw up an equation which looks like:

    __ x 6 = 6.

    Now, we know that 1 x 6 = 6, so we can fill up the blank with a 1. So, the answer is 1.

    To understand this further, watch the following video lesson:
