$4 f + 3$

#### Explanation:

Given that, the number of feet Jeff can throw the baseball be $f$
Nick can throw a baseball three more than 4 times the number of feet.
4 times the number of feet = $4 f$
and three more than this will be $4 f + 3$

If the number of times Nick can throw the baseball is given by $x$,

then,

The expression that can be used to find the number of feet that Nick can throw the ball will be:

$x = 4 f + 3$
