    The expression will be

    2x+3

    Answer: 2x+3

    2.
    Solution:

    Let the number be x

    The expression will be

    2(x+3)

    Answer: 2(x+3)

    3.
    Solution:

    Let the number be x

    The expression will be

    37-4x

    Answer: 37-4x

    4.
    Solution:

    Let the number be x

    The equation will be

    5x+10 = 3

    Answer: 5x+10 = 3

    5.
    Solution:

    Let the number be x

    The equation will be

    (3x)/7 = 21

    Answer: (3x)/7 = 21

    6.
    Solution:

    Let the number of roses she cut be x

    The equation will be

    8 + x = 14

    subtract 8 from each side

    8+x - 8 = 14-8
    x = 6

    Joan cut 6 roses.

    Answer: 6 roses

    7.
    Solution:

    Let the cost of candy bar be x

    The equation will be

    3 + 7x = 31

    Subtract 3 from each side

    3 + 7x -3 = 31-3
    7x = 28

    Divide by 7, we will get

    x = 28/7 = 4

    Cost of each candy bar is $4.

    Answer: $4

    8.
    Solution:

    Let the number be x

    The equation will be

    (4x)*12 = 5

    Answer: (4x)*12 = 5

    9.
    Solution:

    Let the number be x

    The equation will be

    2x-5 = 57

    Answer: 2x-5 = 57

    10.
    Solution:

    Three people shared the bill. Let the total bill be x

    The equation will be

    x/3 = 26

    Multiply by 3, we will get

    x = 3*26 = $78

    Total bill was $78.

    Answer: $78

    11.
    Solution:

    Let the price of each book be x

    The equation will be

    128-9x = 11

    Subtract 128 from each side

    128-9x-128 = 11-128
    -9x = -117

    Divide by -9
    x = -117/-9 = 13

    Price of each book is $13.

    Answer: $13

    12.
    Solution:

    Let the number of packs be x

    The equation will be

    11x = 88

    Divide by 11

    x = 88/11 = 8

    Number of packs is 8.
