Let \(n\) represent our number. How would we write three times that number (\(3 \times \))? How would we write that increased by five (\(+5\))?

x=3+x*5
e.cociuba
  • e.cociuba
x equals three, plus x, times 5

@e.cociuba, that's not quite correct. You should have an expression, not an equation.

the lack of commas makes this a bit ambiguous to me

i see 2 ways of interpreting this .... which makes it ambiguous to me the product of: (three and a number) increased by five the product of: three and (a number increased by five)
amistre64
  • amistre64
the first option is my gut instinct tho

amistre64
  • amistre64
how would you write the product of three and a number?
anonymous
  • anonymous
times 3
amistre64
  • amistre64
yes; but lets use 3*x just to be safe :) then just add five to it
anonymous
  • anonymous
3*x+5
amistre64
  • amistre64
good
e.cociuba
  • e.cociuba

fifteen less than twice a number
amistre64
  • amistre64
yours represents: what is the sum of 3, and the product of 5 and a number
amistre64
  • amistre64
how would you write: twice a number
e.cociuba
  • e.cociuba
Oh well I’m sorry for confusing u guys with my English wording.
anonymous
  • anonymous
i am not sure
amistre64
  • amistre64
twice also can be read as "2 times" so (2 times a number) can be written as?
anonymous
  • anonymous
n*2
amistre64
  • amistre64
good; and when we less that by fifteen .... which means we subtract 15 from it we get?
anonymous
  • anonymous
n*2-15
amistre64
  • amistre64
correct. or another way that you can write it is: 2*x - 15
amistre64
  • amistre64
good luck ;)
