# Write an expression for the sum of three times a given number x after it is increased by 3 and twice the number?

Jul 26, 2017

$3 \left(x + 3\right) + 2 x$

#### Explanation:

The sum means that the numbers are added

$x$ increased by 3 is $x + 3$

so three times a given number x after it is increased by 3 is $3 \left(x + 3\right)$

Twice a number is $2 x$

the sum of three times a given number x after it is increased by 3 and twice the number is $\text{ } 3 \left(x + 3\right) + 2 x$
