    times = multiplication difference = subtraction make sure that you convert every single piece of info just the way that it was written ... so what do you think will be the answer?

    8 times (we know that that means multiplication) the difference of a number (n) and 3... if we were to write down the difference of a number (n) and 3, we would get n - 3 thus we have : 8 x (n - 3)

    i will try my best, but you will also try to understand as well :) when we give a tip, we always have to add (+) it with the total price. remember that this is being divided to 7 people EQUALLY. thus, what operation can we use to figure out how much they will pay equally?
