Hi, my name is Stephan. Today, I'm going to be speaking on how to represent a sentence using an equation. Let's say for example, we have the sentence, three plus nine is twice a number. Now, to write this out, we have three, we have three here and then, we have plus, there's our addition sign. And then, nine, the numeral nine. And now, you have is, and whenever you see "is", that usually means equal sign. Now, twice a number, now I'm going to put a two here for twice, that's double. And the number, I'm going to let that number be N. So, here's our equation which is the same as this sentence here. And we can solve this, we get 12 equals two-N and six equals N. But this is just how you write an equation based on your sentence.
