# How do you write an equation that means "3 times a number, plus 8 is 29"?

Apr 24, 2018

$\implies 3 n + 8 = 29$

#### Explanation:

Let the number be denoted by $n$.

$\implies 3 n + 8 = 29$

Three times a number is represented by $3 n$.

Plus $8$ is obvious.

"Is" is equivalent to writing "equals". So $= 29$.
