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

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

    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)

    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?
