# Three Times The Sum Of A Number And Four Is Equal To Four Times The Difference Between Two Times The Number Five, What Is The Algebraic Equation That Represents This?

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!

Ok i left out and .....

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.
