Answer:

#7x+(x+6)#

Explanation:

Let us assume that the number is #x#
Now the statement:
"#color (green)"Seven times a number",# #color (red)"added to"# the #color (blue)"sum of the number"##color(blue)" and six"#"

Seven times a number #->##7# multiplied by the number #x->7x#
added to #-> +# the number in the part following of statement
sum of the number and six#->x+6#

All three steps written together

#7xxx# #+# #(x+6)# , gives us the required algebraic expression

#7x+(x+6)#
