We have to express the following : "x is less than 7 times the values of 1/3 the price and the price is A" as an equation.

The price is equal to A and x is less than 7 times the values of 1/3 the price.

x < 7 ( 1/3)*A

**Therefore we don't get an equation, instead the inequation is : x < (7/3)*A.**

All we need to do is translate words into mathematical symbols so we can solve the problem.

Let us translate the statements.

Given the number x, is less that 7 times the values of 1/3 the price .

Also, given that the price = A

Then we will rewrite.

x is less than 7 time the values of (1/3)A

We will rewrite x is less as x <

==> x < 7 times the values of (1/3)A

We will translate 7 times as 7 *

==> x < 7* (1/3)A

==> x < (7/3)*A

**Then, the mathematical expression of the statement is:**

**x < (7/3)A**
