The correct answer is 3x-1
twice the difference of three times a number and eight
12 and 28
|3n - 27|
The difference is ten times the number.
It is 3*abs(n - 6) + 4*n
3 x (7 - n)
None of the "following" does.
3x + 8
2n is 2 times n.
The difference between a rooster and Peter is mentioned in the Bible, when the Peter denied Christ three times before the rooster crowed.
They differ by both density and stiffness. Balsa is about/almost three times lighter and pine is three times stiffer. N.J.
2x - 16 = 3x/18
It's an example of converting something easy into something nearly impossible, and then expressing it obscurely. Behind the veil lies an almost trivial algebra exercise. Although the question doesn't ask for the solution to the exercise, here it is anyway, at no extra cost: -- The difference between (eight times a number) and (twice the number) is (six times the number). -- (Six times the number) is eighteen. -- (the number) is one-sixth of eighteen, or three.
