Question | Answer |
---|---|

a number increased by nine | x+9 |

the product of seven and a number | 7x |

five times a number | 5x |

the sum of a number and eight | x + 8 |

the difference of a number and ten | x - 10 |

eight less than a number | x - 8 |

a number divided by fifteen | x / 15 |

a number increased by twelve | x + 12 |

the sum of twice a number and six | 2x + 6 |

eighty less than a number | x – 80 |

twenty-eight split in half | 28 ÷ 2 |

the product of a number and seven | 7x |

the quotient of a number and four | x ÷ 4 |

five greater than three times a number | 3x + 5 |

a number distributed evenly among six | x ÷ 6 |

the total of forty and a number | 40 + x |

A number is negative ten. | x = -10 |

A number plus two is eight. | x + 2 = 8 |

The difference between a number and seven is negative three. | x – 7 = -3 |

One less than twice a number is seventeen. | 2x – 1 = 17 |

Twelve is the product of a number and three | 12 = 3x |

Half of a number is twenty. | (½) x = 20 or ( x / 2) = 20 |

Distribute - 3 ( -x - 5 ) | 3x + 15 |

Distribute - 3 (3 - x) | - 9 + x and in standard form this is x - 9 |

five less than a number | n - 5 |

Three times the sum of a number and twelve | 3(n+12) |

Ten more than the quotient of c and three | (c/3) + 10 |

Two increased by six times a number | 2 + 6n |

two-thirds of a number, minus eleven | (2/3)n-11 |

two-thirds of the difference of a number and eleven | (2/3)(n-11) |

Twice the difference between c and 4 | 2(c-4) |

The product of nine and a number, decreased by seven | 9n - 7 |

The product of nine and the difference of a number and seven | 9(n-7) |

Twelve times the sum of a number and five times the number | 12(n +5n) |

Six times a number plus seven times a number | 6n +7n |
