## Writing Simple Numerical Expressions

**Instructions:**
A numerical expression has numbers and operation signs [math](+, -, xx, -:)[/math], but no equal sign [math](=)[/math]. Some numerical expressions may also have grouping symbols like parentheses or brackets.

Example 1: [math]3+2[/math]

This is a numerical expression with numbers and an addition sign. It does not have an equal sign.

Example 2: [math](5-2)xx6[/math]

This is a numerical expression with numbers, operation signs, and parentheses. It does not have an equal sign.

Write each numerical expression that matches its description.

- [math]5 + 3 -12[/math]
- [math]12 - 5 +3[/math]
- [math](5 + 3) -12[/math]
- [math]12 - (5 + 3)[/math]

[math](4 + 7)xx3[/math]

- three times 7 plus 4
- three plus the sum of 4 and 7
- three times the sum of 4 and 7
- three plus the product of 4 and 7

- [math]50 - (30 + 5)[/math]
- [math]50 + (30 - 5)[/math]
- [math](50 + 30) + 5[/math]
- [math](50 - 30) - 5[/math]

- [math]3 + 2[/math]
- [math]3 - 2[/math]
- [math]4 + 2[/math]
- [math]4 - 2[/math]

- [math]35,000 xx 10[/math]
- [math]35,000-:10[/math]
- [math]35,000 + 10[/math]
- [math]35,000 - 10[/math]

- (3 x 8) + 6
- (3 + 8) - 6
- (3 x 8) - 6
- 3 x (8 - 6)

- [math]4 + 2[/math]
- [math]4 - 2[/math]
- [math]4xx 2[/math]
- [math]4 -: 2[/math]

Which expression represents the total amount of money John received for the bookcases?

- [math](120 + 3)(175 + 2)[/math]
- [math]120(3 + 2) + 175[/math]
- [math]3(120) + 2(175)[/math]
- [math]120(175) + 3(2)[/math]
