    Once again, I'll try to illustrate each for you. Hopefully these will start to make sense after doing a few. 1. 2(x+7) + 10 2. 2(x-7) + 10 3. 2x-7+10 4. 2x + (7+10) Another key word I look for is "Sum". So when they say "Two times the sum of...", in your mind you should think: 2( ___ + ___ ) Same thing with difference. "Two times the difference of..." 2( ___ - ___ )

    It says: Seth's age can be described as 4 less than 2 times his cousin's age. If his cousin's age is represented by the variable "m", write the algebraic expression representing Seth's age using "m".

    My answer: Algebraic expression representing Seth's age using "m": 2m - 4
