## 28Tylerr 3 years ago Write a algebraic expression to represent and each verbal expression: The difference between the product of 4 and a number and the square of the number.

1. 28Tylerr

Can you help me?

2. Chlorophyll

product of 4 and a number : 4n the square of the number: n² =>The difference between them: ....?

3. 28Tylerr

Hummm I know that they are just wanting you to up the sentice into numbers. Could you tell me what that would be?

4. Chlorophyll

I already done 99% work for you, Can you continue with the difference?

5. 28Tylerr

Well what you would really do now is since it is 4^2 you would do 4 x 4 = 64. But it did not want me to solve it. It just said write it NOT solve it

6. Chlorophyll

Difference does NOT mean to solve it!

7. 28Tylerr

Right i'm just saying it asked for us to write a algebraic expression NOT solve you was trying to make us solve it.

8. Chlorophyll

AGAIN, Difference does NOT mean to solve it!

9. 28Tylerr

I know difference means to subtract

10. Chlorophyll

Now, do subtract!

11. Chlorophyll

= 4n - n² ( Difference )
