Answer:

The algebraic expression is #(9n)/5 = 18#.

Explanation:

First, let's let "a number" be #n#.

Let's split this up:
"9 times a number":
#9n#

"divided by 5":
#(9n)/5#

"is 18":
#(9n)/5 = 18#

If you want to solve this, you multiply both sides by #5#, then divide both sides by #9#, and you should get #n = 10#.

Hope this helps!
