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?

**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 ‘2*y*’ (you know, ‘2*y*’ means 2 multiplied
by *y*).
