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 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
so it will be n=3+x
k so then u help us all out here. im a bit confussed!
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)
the first option is my gut instinct tho
how would you write the product of three and a number?
yes; but lets use 3*x just to be safe :) then just add five to it
thats the same thing i did, i just did 3+x*5 (u just switched the 3 and 5)
your math sentence does not reflect the english wording.
can u help me with an another
fifteen less than twice a number
yours represents: what is the sum of 3, and the product of 5 and a number
how would you write: twice a number
Oh well I’m sorry for confusing u guys with my English wording.
i am not sure
twice also can be read as "2 times" so (2 times a number) can be written as?
good; and when we less that by fifteen .... which means we subtract 15 from it we get?
correct. or another way that you can write it is: 2*x - 15
good luck ;)
