Just like the previous question, write out the equation as you would say it:    "Three times the sum" would be represented as:    And "four times the difference" would be:              3 (   +   )                      then "is equal to"  =        4 (   -   )    Just fill in the known numbers and your variable for the answer!

Three Times The Sum Of A Number And Four Is Equal To Four Times The Difference Between Two Times The Number and Five, What Is The Algebraic Equation That Represents This..so would it be 3 (x+4)= 4(5-2x)

Based on your wording, you probably need to reverse the last two values:
"The difference between two times the number and five" would be ( 2X - 5 )

Therefore 3 ( X + 4 ) = 4 ( 2X - 5 )

Hope I helped.
