Variable:
a symbol that stands for a number.
Examples: a, b, x, y, …...
Algebraic Expressions:
a group of numbers, variables, and
operations.
Examples: 13 - g

Rules:
• Write each problem the way you
read the words from left to right.
• “more than” OR “less than”
means flip the problem parts.
Write an algebraic expression for
each word phrase.
1. The sum of eighty-nine and a number.
2. The difference between forty-six
and h.
3. The quotient of twenty and a number.
4. Fifty-five times f.
Write an algebraic expression for
each word phrase.
1. one more than the product of twelve
and a number
Answer: 12p + 1
2. four less than a number n divided by
two
Answer: n ÷ 2 - 4
3. Six minus the quotient of u and two
Answer: 6 – u ÷ 2
Translate each algebraic
expression into words.
1. 3 + n
Answer: 3 more than a number
2. 7h
Answer: the product of 7 and h
3. a – 5 **use the word “less than”
Answer: 5 is less than a
Translate each algebraic
expression into words.
4b – 3
Answer: 4 multiplied by b minus 3
OR three less than the product of four
and b
5. 16g + 12
Answer: The product of 16 and g plus
12 OR Sixteen times g plus 12
