How do you translate "six times a number increased by eleven" into an algebraic expression?

The algebraic expression would be $6 n + 11$.

Explanation:

You can "translate" the sentence from English into math, like this:

$\stackrel{6}{\overbrace{\text{Six") " " stackrel(xx) overbrace("times") " " stackrel(n) overbrace("a number") " " stackrel(+) overbrace("increased by") " " stackrel(11) overbrace("eleven}}}$

Now you can copy it down and simplify it a little bit:

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{=} 6 \times n + 11$

$= 6 n + 11$

That's it. Hope this helped!
