Question

Which of the following best describes the algebraic expression 5(x+2)-3? A. Three less than five times a number plus two B. Three less than five times the quantity of a number plus two

0

1. A. decribes three less so -3 than a five times number thus -3+5x plus 2 so 5x-1 where x is our number
b. three less again -3 than five times the quantity of a number plus two -3*5(x+2)
which means B best describes our situation

Option B is correct.

Three less than five times of a quantity of a number plus two.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given the expression: To describe the given algebraic expression.

Here, x be the number.

x+ 2 means “a number plus 2”

5(x+2) means “five times the quantity of a number plus two”.

and

5(x+2)-3 means “Three less than five times of a quantity of a number plus two”.

Therefore, the following which best describe the algebraic expression is,  Three less than five times of a quantity of a number plus two.
