    translating English phrases into algebraic expressions

    okay I have another problem a number, half of that number, and one-third of that number are added. The result is 22. So far I have

    write it like this ..... x+ x/2 + x/3 = 22 or

     x+\frac {x}{2} +\frac {x}{3} = 22

    that way someone can think you wrote ... x+ 1/(2x) + 1 /(3x) ....
    it's the same as the another one that you post ... just this one multiply with 6

     6x +.....
