How do you write 6 more than the product of 8 and a number?

2 Answers

6 + 8x, where x is a number. You can also write this in standard form as 8x + 6.


Let's say "X" is equal to a number. You want to find 6 more than the product of 8 and "X." First, put the expression "+6." Then, let's find the product of 8 and "X." Because 8 is a coefficient and x is a variable, we can only write this as 8x. Now, we add the expression "+6." Finally, we get our answer of 8x + 6.

You write it like this: #6+8n#.


You can translate the sentence in English into math. "The product of" means multiplying two numbers, and "6 more than" means adding 6:

#stackrel(6+) overbrace"6 more than"" " stackrel(8xxn) overbrace"8 and a number"#

Putting it all together, you get:


where #n# is "a number" as described by the question.
