1. Some number increased by two = b + 2

A variable decreased by two = x – 2

Product of an unknown value and two = 2z

Quotient of some number and two = [tex]a \div 2[/tex]

An unknown value squared = [tex]y^2[/tex]

Solution:

Some number increased by two

Let the number be “b”

Therefore, “b” is increased by two

Thus we get,

Some number increased by two = b + 2

A variable decreased by two

Let the number be “x”

Therefore, “x” is decreased by two

Decreased means reduced or subtraction

Thus we get,

A variable decreased by two = x – 2

Product of an unknown value and two

Let the unknown value be “z”

Product means “multiplication”

Therefore, product of “z” and 2

Product of an unknown value and two = 2z

Quotient of some number and two

Let the some number be “a”

Quotient means result of division

Quotient of some number and two = [tex]a \div 2[/tex]

An unknown value squared

Let the unknown value be “y”

Squared means multiplied by itself

An unknown value squared = [tex]y^2[/tex]
