It says translate the verbal phrase into an expression.

1. 2/3 x m

2. 3to the 5th power x y

3. t+12

4. 8-bx2

Did i do them right?

1. correct or you could write (2/3)m or (2/3)*m

2. correct or you could write 3^{5}*y or 3^{5}y.

3. quotient means divide. You have added. It also says twice the number t; therefore, I would write 2t/12; then I would reducd it to t/6.

4. I think it would be better to write (8-b)*2. The way you have it written the 8 is not multiplied by 2. That is why I added parentheses.

Check my thinking.

number 3 looks like it should be t x 2/12 (t times 2 divided by 12)...i think so
