• 1.

### Twenty-two less than a number, a all times three

• A.

22 - a x 3

• B.

(a - 22) x 3

• C.

22 - 1 x 3

B. (a - 22) x 3
Explanation
The correct answer is (a - 22) x 3. This is because the question states "twenty-two less than a number, a, all times three." This can be translated into the equation a - 22 x 3, which simplifies to (a - 22) x 3.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### Twenty-two times a number, a, plus three

• A.

A x 22 + 3

• B.

3 + 2 x 22

• C.

22 x a + 3

C. 22 x a + 3
Explanation
The given expression "twenty-two times a number, a, plus three" can be represented as 22 multiplied by the number a, and then adding 3 to the product. Therefore, the correct answer is 22 x a + 3.

Rate this question:

• 3.

### A number, a, increased by three, all times twenty-two

• A.

A + 3 x 22

• B.

(a + 3) x 22

• C.

3 + a x 22

B. (a + 3) x 22
Explanation
The correct answer is (a + 3) x 22 because the given statement "a number, a, increased by three, all times twenty-two" implies that we need to first add 3 to the number a, and then multiply the result by 22. This is represented by the expression (a + 3) x 22.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### Twenty-two times a number, a, decreased by three

• A.

22 x a - 3

• B.

A x 22 - 3

• C.

22 + a x 3

A. 22 x a - 3
Explanation
The given expression, 22 x a - 3, represents "twenty-two times a number, a, decreased by three". This can be understood by breaking down the expression: 22 multiplied by a gives the result of "twenty-two times a number", and then subtracting 3 from that gives the final result of "twenty-two times a number, a, decreased by three".

Rate this question:

• 5.

### A number, a, divided by three, increased by twenty-two

• A.

3 / a + 22

• B.

A / 3 + 22

• C.

3 / a x 22

B. A / 3 + 22
Explanation
The correct answer is a / 3 + 22 because the given statement states that a number, a, is divided by three and then increased by twenty-two. This can be represented as a / 3 + 22.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### The sum of three and twenty-two, all divided by a number, a

• A.

(3 + 22) / a

• B.

A / (3 + 22)

• C.

3 + 22 / a

A. (3 + 22) / a
Explanation
The correct answer is (3 + 22) / a. This is because the expression is asking for the sum of three and twenty-two, and then dividing that sum by a number, represented by "a". Therefore, the sum of three and twenty-two is divided by "a".

Rate this question:

• 7.

### A number, a, less than twenty-two, all times three

• A.

22 - (a x 3)

• B.

22 - a x 3

• C.

(22 - a) x 3

C. (22 - a) x 3
Explanation
The correct answer is (22 - a) x 3. This is because the given question states that we have a number, a, that is less than twenty-two, and we need to multiply it by three. To achieve this, we first subtract a from 22 to get the difference between 22 and a. Then, we multiply this difference by 3 to obtain the final result.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### The sum of a number, a, and three, all divided by twenty-two

• A.

(a + 3) / 22

• B.

A + (3 / 22)

• C.

A + 3 / 22

A. (a + 3) / 22
Explanation
The given expression represents the sum of a number, "a", and three, divided by twenty-two. The correct answer is (a + 3) / 22 because the division should be performed after the addition. This means that "a" and 3 should be added first, and then the sum should be divided by 22.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### A number, a, decreased by three and then increased by twenty-two

• A.

3 - a + 22

• B.

(a - 3) + 22

• C.

A - 3 + 22 Back to top
