I do not understand this problem Please help me. 
three times a number z is 3z.

sum means add
one of the numbers is called x
three times x is 3 x
the other number is called y
three times y is 3 y
Now add 3 x and 3 y
In other words put a + sign between them. 
10 plus 31 more than a number c

write an algebraic expression for 43 more than t 43 + t

36 less than y
