Answer:

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

Explanation:

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

#stackrel(6) overbrace("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:

#color(white)=6xxn+11#

#=6n+11#

That's it. Hope this helped!
