# How do you express the phrase "5 a number t divided by 82" as an algebraic expression?

It would be $\frac{5 \cdot t}{82}$
• "a number $x$ greater than" means adding $x$
• If you see something like "a number 3 times greater than a sum of x and 6", you write it as $3 \cdot \left(x + 6\right)$. In such cases the second expression (here the sum) must be written in brackets.
