Hello, frankpham12!
Let = the number.
There is our equation . . .
Hey guys i cant seem to understand much word problems.. for example
"The sum of a number and six, multiplied by two results in twenty-two"
I need a math expression out of that.
If you have time can you please give me some hints on how to solve word problems. May you also tell me some words that i need to know to solve words problems for Example "of" Means multiply. If you know more please list them that would be very helpful.
Let's break it down:
The sum of a number and six, multiplied by two results in twenty-two.
Let be this mystery number.
Then, sum of a number and six can be represented mathematically as
Now, multiplied by two means that we take the previous result, and double it. Mathematically, it would be the same as saying
Finally, the previous result results in twenty-two. This now gives us the equation
Now you can solve for n.
