Write the following algebraic expression as a verbal expression: two π‘š.

We’re going to need to convert two π‘š into a verbal expression. To find our verbal expression, we’ll need to think what does two π‘š mean mathematically. What is happening here? When a variable and a coefficient are written right next to each other, mathematically our instruction would be to multiply. We have two multiplied by π‘š or two times π‘š.
