1. 1. (Seven times a number), added to (the sum of the number and eight).
---> 7x + x+8 = 8x + 8

4. 8.7 less than a number
----> x - 8.7
(if I said "3 less than 8", you would take 8-3 , not 3 - 8, wouldn't you ? )

7. The quotient of a number and 2 subtracted from 5
the quotient is subtracted FROM 5
so, 5 - x/2

the rest are correct
