Framing Algebraic Statements

Consider that there are ‘n’ number of apples in a basket. If 5 more apples are added, what will be the total number of apples in the basket now? The total number of apples can be easily framed into an algebraic statement as n + 5’. This algebraic statement n + 5’ tells that, whatever be the number of apples you had earlier, there are 5 more apples now in the basket.

Suppose there are unknown number of people in a bus, say ‘x’ and if 2 more people get into the bus, then there will be x + 2’ people in the bus.

There is a patty of butter which weighs ‘w’ grams. If you cut off 100 grams from it, you will have w − 100’ grams left.

If you start with a number ‘y’ and then double it, you can write it as ‘2y (you know, ‘2ymeans 2 multiplied by y).
