operator - any symbol that indicates an operation to be performed such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division

76 decreased by twice a number. Use the variable n to represent the unknown number

76 decreased by twice a number. Use the variable n to represent the unknown number.
Twice a number (n) means we multiply the unknown number n by 2:
2n
76 decreased by twice a number means we subtract 2n from 76 using the (-) operator
[B]76 - 2n[/B]

A bowl contains 45 oranges. If ? of the oranges are bad; how many are good?

Using our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=1&frac2=2%2F3&pl=Subtract']fraction operator calculator[/URL], we see that:
1 - 2/3 = 1/3 of the oranges are good.
We want 1/3 of 45. [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=45&frac2=1/3&pl=Multiply']Typing this expression into our search engine[/URL], we get:
[B]15 good oranges[/B]

Algebraic Expressions

This calculator builds algebraic expressions based on word representations of numbers using the four operators and the words that represent them(increased,product,decreased,divided,times)
Also known as Mathematical phrases

An operation is defined by a*b=3a-b.Calculate the exact value of 2*3

An operation is defined by a*b=3a-b.Calculate the exact value of 2*3
We're given a = 2 and b = 3. So the operator says:
3(2) - 3
6 - 3
[B]3[/B]

Input Table

Given an input table with input and output values, this will determine the operator and rule used to populate the missing values.

Jordan has already scored 153 points this basketball season. If he scores 17 points per game, which

Jordan has already scored 153 points this basketball season. If he scores 17 points per game, which inequality represents the number of addional games he needs to play in order to score at least 255 points for the season?
Let g be the number of games Jordan plays. Total points per game is 17g. And he’s already scored 153. So we need 17g + 153 to be [I]at least [/I]255. The phrase at least means greater than or equal to, so we use the >= operator for our inequality:
[B]17g + 153 >= 255[/B]

Proportion

1) Calculates the missing link of 2 equivalent proportions or ratios.

2) Also determines if two numerical proportions that you entered such as 1/10=6/12 are equivalent or*not* equivalent.
Note: You can use all allowable operators such as =,<,≤,>,≥

2) Also determines if two numerical proportions that you entered such as 1/10=6/12 are equivalent or

the cube of t is less than 12

the cube of t is less than 12
The cube of t
t^3
is less than 12, we use the operator <
t^3 < 12
