Translating Word Phrases to Algebraic Expressions
Once again, all our prior work translating words to algebra transfers to phrases that include both multiplying and dividing integers. Remember that the key word for multiplication is product and for division is quotient.
Translate to an algebraic expression and simplify if possible: the product of \(-2\) and \(14.\)
The word product tells us to multiply.
|the product of \(-2\) and \(14\)|
Translate to an algebraic expression and simplify if possible: the quotient of \(-56\) and \(-7.\)
The word quotient tells us to divide.
|the quotient of −56 and −7|
