# How do you write a numerical or variable expression for each quantity: two dozen eggs?

Apr 26, 2016

One dozen = 12
So
Two dozen = 24

#### Explanation:

The numerical expression for $2$ dozen eggs would be $24$ eggs.
Because you already know that there are $2$ dozen eggs then you don't need a variable expression, as that is only needed if you don't know how many eggs you have. A variable expression would be used if the question was d dozen eggs.

d dozen eggs would equal to $12 d$ as a variable expression because $d$ is the unknown.
