Write the following algebraic expression as a verbal expression: two 𝑚.
We’re going to need to convert two 𝑚 into a verbal expression. To find our verbal expression, we’ll need to think what does two 𝑚 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 𝑚 or two times 𝑚. That’s what’s happening in this expression. A verbal expression of two 𝑚 would say two times 𝑚.
