-65 times the difference between a number and 79 is equal to the number plus 98

-65 times the difference between a number and 79 is equal to the number plus 98
The phrase [I]a number[/I] means an arbitrary variable. Let's call it x.
The first expression, [I]the difference between a number and 79[/I] means we subtract 79 from our arbitrary variable of x:
x - 79
Next, -65 times the difference between a number and 79 means we multiply our result above by -65:
-65(x - 79)
The phrase [I]the number[/I] refers to the arbitrary variable x earlier. The number plus 98 means we add 98 to x:
x + 98
Now, let's bring it all together. The phrase [I]is equal to[/I] means an equation. So we set -65(x - 79) equal to x + [B]98:
-65(x - 79) = x + 98[/B] <-- This is our algebraic expression
If the problem asks you to take it a step further and solve for x, then you [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=-65%28x-79%29%3Dx%2B98&pl=Solve']type this equation into our search engine[/URL], and you get:

The sum of two consecutive integers plus 18 is 123

The sum of two consecutive integers plus 18 is 123.
Let our first integer be n and our next integer be n + 1. We have:

twice the difference of a number and 55 is equal to 3 times the sum of a number and 8

twice the difference of a number and 55 is equal to 3 times the sum of a number and 8
Take this algebraic expression in pieces.
Left side: The phrase [I]a number[/I] means an arbitrary variable, let's call it x.
x
The difference of this number and 55 means we subtract 55 from x

Verbal Phrase

Given an algebraic expression, this translates back to a verbal phrase

vw^2+y=x for w

vw^2+y=x for w
This is an algebraic expression.
Subtract y from each side:

Divide each side by v
w^2 = (x - y)/v
Take the square root of each side:
w = [B]Sqrt((x - y)/v)[/B]
