Problem: Seven times the sum of a number and two.
We are going to be translating this sentence into an expression. So first off we know that the numbers involved are going to be 7, a number and two. Now first off the expression will begin with a 7 now 7 is times "the sum of a number and two" so that indicates that "a number and two" should be in parentheses. Our expression now looks like this:
Now because there are no more numbers left over in our problem. This is how "Seven times the sum of a number and two." Looks written out.
