#### Explanation:

First, let's write the verbal expression for $7 {x}^{3}$

This is the multiplication of a constant and a term with an exponent so we can write:

"The product of $7$ and $x$ cubed."

Next is subtraction, or, a "difference", so we can write:

"The difference of the product of $7$ and $x$ cubed and 1"

We can also write this as a sum using a negative number:

"The sum of the product of $7$ and $x$ cubed and minus 1"
