**Michael**, Tuesday, August 28, 2007 at 7:45pmIt 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?

**DrBob222**, Tuesday, August 28, 2007 at 7:55pm1. 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.

**bridget**, Tuesday, August 28, 2007 at 7:55pmnumber 3 looks like it should be t x 2/12 (t times 2 divided by 12)...i think so

**DrBob222**, Tuesday, August 28, 2007 at 8:42pmI agree the problem is not stated very well; however, 2t/12 is the same thing as tx2/12 and that still reduces to t/6 so we both interpreted the problem the same way and arrived at the same answer.
