# 5.4 Application i - translating from verbal to mathetical expressions  (Page 2/2)

 Page 2 / 2

Some phrases and sentences do not translate directly. We must be careful to read them properly. The word from often appears in such phrases and sentences. The word from means "a point of departure for motion." The following translation will illustrate this use. The word from indicates the motion (subtraction) is to begin at the point of "some quantity."

Eight less than some quantity. Notice that less than could be replaced with from .
$x-8$

## Practice set b

Translate the following phrases and sentences into mathematical expressions or equations.

A number divided by sixteen, plus one, is five.

$\frac{x}{16}+1=5$

Seven times two more than a number is twenty-one.

$7\left(2+x\right)=21$

A number divided by two more than itself is zero.

$\frac{x}{2+x}=0$

A number minus five is divided by twice the number plus three and the result is seventeen.
