Translate each phrase into a mathematical expression. itself but the outcome of the operation.

1) six less than twice a number x

2) five times the sum of y and 4

3) twice the difference of m and 3

4) the quotient of 7 and a number x less 2

5) the difference of 6 and k divided by 9

6) 4 times the sum of 12 and y

number x

Define a variable to represent the unknown and itself but the outcome of the operation.

write the phrase as a variable expression.

1) 10 mph faster than the Honda

Let x = the speed of the Honda

x + 10

2) 7 inches shorter than Jill’s brother

Let b = the height of Jill’s brother

b - 7

3) 5 acres larger than twice the size of my lot

Let k = the size of my lot

2k + 5

4) \$7.50 times the number of people plus a

\$20 group registration

Let y = the number of people

\$7.5y + \$20
