# Going From an Expression to a Sequence of Operations

Need some practice going the other direction? Going from a Sequence of Operations to an Expression

The expression $\,2x + 1\,$ represents the sequence of operations take a number, multiply by $\,2\,$, then add $\,1\,$’.

The expression $\,2(x+1)\,$ represents the sequence of operations take a number, add $\,1\,$, then multiply by $\,2\,$’.

(Of course, a variable other than $\,x\,$ can be used.)

## Concept Practice

Write the sequence of operations corresponding to this expression:
