The expression is simply: 9+q
The sum of p and q means (p+q). The difference of p and q means (p-q).
three-fourths of the sum of q and 5
q - p
As an algebraic expression it is simply: 8+q
It is: 4*(q+p)
if q+9=16 q=16-9 q= 7
the sum of q plus 5!
Watch carefully:Q + 8 = 9Subtract 8 from each side of this algebraic linear equation:Q = 1 .
q + 9
