### If m = 17, what is the sum of 5 and m?

• A.

85

• B.

22

• C.

21

• D.

84

B. 22
Explanation
If ( m = 17 ), and we want to find the sum of 5 and ( m ), we can represent it algebraically as ( 5 + m ). Then we substitute the value of ( m ) into the expression:

[ 5 + m = 5 + 17 = 22 ]

So, the sum of 5 and ( m ) when ( m = 17 ) is 22.

Rate this question:

### What is the difference between an expression and an equation?

• A.

They are the same thing.

• B.

An equation has an equal sign, but an expression does not.

• C.

An equation has more numbers and an expression has more variables.

• D.

An expression always has a higher value for the variable.

B. An equation has an equal sign, but an expression does not.
Explanation
An equation and an expression are both fundamental components of algebraic notation, but they serve different purposes. An equation represents a mathematical statement asserting the equality of two expressions and is denoted by an equal sign, such as $$x + 3 = 7$$. Conversely, an expression consists of variables, constants, and operators, representing a mathematical phrase without asserting equality, like $$2x + 5$$. While equations are used to solve for unknown variables, expressions are used to represent mathematical relationships or quantities. In essence, equations provide a framework for problem-solving, while expressions serve as the building blocks for mathematical operations and calculations.

### What does 25k mean?

• A.

• B.

The difference between k and 25

• C.

The product of 25 and k

C. The product of 25 and k
Explanation
The correct answer is "the product of 25 and k". In mathematics, when two numbers are multiplied together, the result is called their product. Therefore, when we multiply 25 and k, we get the value of 25k.

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

• A.

22 x a - 3

• B.

3 - a x 22

• C.

22 + a x 3

A. 22 x a - 3
Explanation
The given expression "22 x a - 3" represents the phrase "twenty-two times a number, a, decreased by three". This can be understood by breaking down the expression: "22 x a" means multiplying 22 by a, and then subtracting 3 from the result. Therefore, the correct answer is "22 x a - 3".

Rate this question:

• 16.

### The sum of three and twenty-two, then divided by the 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 question states that the sum of three and twenty-two should be divided by the number a. So, we first add three and twenty-two to get twenty-five, and then divide it by a.

• 17.

### Fill in the blank! A _________ is a letter that represents a number(of something).

variable
Explanation
The correct answer is "variable". In mathematics and programming, a variable is a symbol or letter that represents a value or quantity that can change. It is used to store and manipulate data in a program or equation.

Rate this question:

### Please fill answer below The ____________ of a variable is the number in front of the variable.

coefficient
Explanation
The coefficient of a variable in an algebraic expression is the numerical factor that is multiplied by the variable. For instance, in the expression (3x), the coefficient of (x) is (3). Similarly, in the expression (2y), the coefficient of (y) is (2). Coefficients provide information about the scale or magnitude of the variable's contribution to the expression. They help quantify the relationship between the variable and other terms in the expression. In summary, the coefficient represents the factor by which the variable is multiplied in the expression.

### The coefficient of x when you have 1.55x is.....

• A.

1.00

• B.

0.55

• C.

1.55

• D.

155

C. 1.55
Explanation
The coefficient of x in the expression 1.55x is 1.55. In algebraic expressions, the coefficient is the number that multiplies the variable. In this case, x is being multiplied by 1.55, so 1.55 is the coefficient of x.

• 20.

### The coefficient of y when you have 22y/9 is.....

• A.

1/9

• B.

22/9

• C.

22

B. 22/9
Explanation
The coefficient of y in the expression 22y/9 is 22/9. The coefficient is the number that multiplies the variable, in this case, y. In the given expression, 22 is the numerator and 9 is the denominator, so the coefficient is 22/9.

### Translate from an English expression into an Algebraic expression: a decreased by 17 ***answer with NO SPACES***  Example: x+5

a-17
Explanation
The correct answer is "a-17" or "A-17". This is because the phrase "a decreased by 17" can be translated into algebraic expression by subtracting 17 from the variable "a". The expression "a-17" represents the variable "a" decreased by 17. Similarly, "A-17" represents the variable "A" decreased by 17.

Rate this question:

• 22.

### Translate from an English expression into an Algebraic expression: the ratio of m and n ***answer with NO SPACES***  Example: x+5

m/n
Explanation
The given correct answer is m/n, M/N. This is because the expression "the ratio of m and n" can be represented algebraically as m/n or M/N, where m and n are variables representing any real numbers.

Rate this question:

• 23.

### Translate from an English expression into an Algebraic expression: 8 less than the sum of a and b ***answer with NO SPACES***  Example: x+5

(a+b)-8
Explanation
The correct answer is (a+b)-8. The expression "8 less than the sum of a and b" can be translated into algebraic notation by subtracting 8 from the sum of a and b.

### Translate from an English expression into an Algebraic expression: 15 more than one third x ***answer with NO SPACES***  Example: (1/2)x+5 ***do not use a decimal number for "one third"

15+1/3x, 15+(1/3)x
Explanation
The English expression "15 more than one-third x" can be translated into an algebraic expression as "15 + 1/3x" or "15 + (1/3)x." This expression indicates that we first find one-third of x, and then add 15 to the result.
