Let Y be the number we want and x represent the unknown value.

A)

Value we want = Y

Unknown = x

condition = twelve less than a number

**So we can write the algebraic expression as;**

**Y = x-12**

B)

Value we want = Y

Unknown = x

condition = twice a quantity

**So we can write the algebric expression as;**

**Y = 2x**
