All you have to do is set up this equation (3x=2x-

**3**), since x (the unknown**number**) multipled by**3**(which becomes 3x)**equals**x multipled by 2 (which is 2x) subtracted by**3**(which makes it 2x-**3**), and then solve. In the end, you should get x=-**3**, or -9=-6–**3**. So there you have it.

Hereof, what is 3 less than twice a number?

Three **less than twice a number** is 13.

**Then**you look at "

**twice**a number" That

**means**to multiply the number N by 2 That's 2N

**Then**you look at "

**3 more than twice**a number"" To make something

**3 more**you add on

**3**with a plus sign and a

**3**. Answer: 2N +

**3**Edwin.

Secondly, what is 3 more than twice a number?

The **number** (x) in: "**3 more than twice a number** is 7" is what we are solving here. In other words, you are looking for a **number** (x) that if you multiply it by two (same as **twice**) and **then** add **3**, you get 7. The answer above is correct, because **twice** 2 is 4, and **3 more than** 4 is in fact 7.

“**five less**” **than** “**twice** a” **number** is “nine”.
