# How do you write the phrase as an expression, then evaluate when x=5: 6 more than the product of 8 and a number x?

$46$

#### Explanation:

First, we must write the mathematical form for "the product of 8 and a number x":

$8 \times x$

Then "6 more than this" would be:

$\left(8 \times x\right) + 6$

So, to evaluate for $x = 5$ we substitute $5$ for $x$ and calculate:

$\left(8 \times 5\right) + 6 \to 40 + 6 \to 46$
