Using x to represent the larger of the two numbers, translate "the difference between six more than twice the larger number and the sum of the smaller number and three" into a variable expression. Then simplify. : x = the larger number then (33-x) = the smaller number ; "translate "the difference between six more than twice the larger number and the sum of the smaller number and three" into a variable expression. Then simplify." (2x+6) - ((33-x)+3) 2x + 6 - (36 - x) 2x + 6 - 36 + x 2x + x - 30 3x - 30 3(x-10)
