Translate the following statement into an algebraic equaion. Let x represent the number. 6 times a number is 14 more than that number.
I got

6x=x+14 Is this correct

• algebra trying again -

If "the number", "a number" and "that number" are the same, then
6x > x+14

They are stating an inequality but asking for an equation. Shame on the teacher.
