    In other words, you need to give some instructions about what you are to do with the problems.

    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 35*y or 35y.
    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

    I 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.
