If it were: ``` five times the sum of m and 3 is the same as seven times n. ``` then it would make sense. Let's assume it was: ``` five times the sum of m and 3 is the same as seven times n. ``` then we replace the words "the sum of m and 3" by "(m+3)" because "sum" means to add. So now you have: ``` five times (m+3) is the same as seven times n. ``` Now replace the words "five times (m+3)" by "5(m+3)". Now you have ``` 5(m+3) is the same as seven times n. ``` Now replace the words "is the same as" by an equal sign " = " Now you have ``` 5(m+3) = seven times n. ``` Finally replace the words "seven times n", by "7n". and you now have the translation: ``` 5(m+3) = 7n ``` Edwin```
