What is a good word problem for the following expression?
3(m+4)

Well, we're going to need three lots of some unknown number plus 4.
Let the three be bags.
Since we're near Halloween, let's say some unknown number of pieces of candy get divided equally into 3 bags. Then let's say somebody adds 4 pieces to each bag. Can you work with that?
