Can you help me write these out in an algebraic expression?
1. Seven less than twice a number equals 19.
2.Eight decreased by 3 times a number equals 2.
3. The sum of two times a number and 5 is 11.
Is this right?
x/8 + 1/2 = 6
My answer: x=44

no. Add 1/2 to each side
x/8=6.5
multiply both sides by 8
x=52 
Thank you so much! Just redid it, and got it right:) anyways, what about the other questions though?
