Translating Word Phrases into Algebraic Expressions or Equations
Chapter 1

Some words that have mathematical meaning are:
Addition: Sum Increased “More than” Plus Add Subtraction: Difference Decreased “Less than” Minus Subtract

Some words that have mathematical meaning are:
Multiplication: Product Times Multiply “Twice” means to multiply by two Division: Quotient Divide

Some words that have mathematical meaning are:
Equal to: Is Equals Grouping: The quantity of The result of
