#Note: $(a)(b) = a \times b$ $6 \times 0 \times 8 = 0$
$a \times b\times c =(a)(b)(c) =$ General formula for finding the answer 1. Multiply the first two numbers together $(a \times b)$ $6 \times 0 = 0$ 2. Multiply the previous number in Step #1 with the last number $((a \times b) \times c)$ $0 \times 8 = 0$
