The simplified equation is 4x – 6. Remember: If you need to review operations with signed numbers, read CliffsQuickReview Basic Math and Pre-Algebra by Jerry Bobrow (Wiley Publishing). Example 7 uses many of the concepts covered to this point. Example 7: Translate and simplify the following: twice the sum of five and a number is added to twelve Carefully read the expression and notice: The two adjacent key words: TWICE the SUM OF The separator: IS The leading keyword: the SUM OF ______ AND ______ The turnaround word: TO Here’s how to proceed: 1.

Twice (the sum of five and a number) is added to twelve Chapter 3: Simplifying Expressions 33 3. The leading keyword SUM OF indicates a plus sign where the corresponding keyword AND is in the expression. Draw an arrow to indicate the placement of the plus sign. twice (the sum of five and a number) is added to twelve 4. The turnaround word TO indicates the twelve will be at the beginning of the expression instead of the end. Place a box around TO. twice (the sum of five and a number) is added to twelve 5.
