    I believe it would look something like this: \[n-2=5+2n\]

    Well, if you write it in a complete sentence, I suppose you can just rephrase what they said in the question.

    Yup, good work. So your sentence could be something like "If two is subtracted from a number the result is five more than twice the number, then the number would be negative seven." Or something along those lines. :o)
