# How do you write: Five times the sum of a number and one?

Oct 27, 2016

$5 \cdot \left(n + 1\right)$
To write Five times the sum of a number and one you first make "a number" into a variable. In this case let's call it $n$.
Next let's create the sum of a number and one. This would be: $n + 1$.
Then to get five times this number we need to multiple this expression by five to get: $5 \cdot \left(n + 1\right)$
