Expression: #20 \times 8 + 10#


If you mean to say it to an expression, then we know that my product, it would mean to multiply. So we have the product of 20 and 8, which means #20 \times 8#. But the product of this would be increased, or added, by 10. Thus, we have: #20 \times 8 + 10#.

You can put a parenthesis around #20 \times 8#, although the Order of Operations would secure that multiplication would come before addition.
