The correct answer might well be an English expression but it is NOT a mathematical one!

A letter can be used in place of any number  especially if the number has not yet been worked out


Let us suppose that a = 3. (5 x 3) + (7 x 3) = 36. This is the same as saying 12 x 3 (12a) = 36

You must multiply the numbers together AND the letters. Remember a x a = a^{2}


Here we are adding numbers together, NOT multiplying them together

Be careful to account for all the a's, then all the b's and then all the c's. In this case + 6c and  6c cancel each other out and therefore they do not appear in the simplification


You have two times the number that I have got and 2 times x is the same as 2x



Don't get baffled by complicated wording  often the answer is easier than you think

If you got the answer wrong then think carefully through each aspect of the question. Rosie's mother was 28 when Rosie was born. 4 years later, Suzie was born. Suzie is now x years old so Rosie's mother's age is now
28 + 4 + x = 32 + x
