Write an expression that matches this description: 23 more than the product of 19 and five.

The first phrase says 23 more than. When we see the phrase “more than,” we should wonder, more than what? 23 more than the product of 19 and five. The word “product” tells us we’ll be working with multiplication of 19 and five. We have 19 times five. We take the product of 19 and five, 19 times five. And we have 23 more than that.

The phrase “more than” is how we know we’re dealing with addition. We combine these two pieces, 19 times five plus 23. We can express 23 more than the product of 19 and five by writing 19 times five plus 23.
