I Don't understand any of this and its due tommorow and i don't get it, can you please help me.

1. 2/3 of a number m

2. The fifth power of 3 times a number y

3. The quotient of twice a nimber t and 12

4. Twice the difference of 8 and a number b.

• Algebra, help please!!! -

so..so u have to write out the symbols for them or actually attempt to solve them?

• Algebra, help please!!! -

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

• Algebra, help please!!! -

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?

• Algebra, help please!!! -

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.

• Algebra, help please!!! -

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

• Algebra, help please!!! -

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.
