In this lesson on translating math to word statements, Professor Perez teaches how to write sum and difference math expressions as word statements. With the help of his trusty assistant Charlie, viewers learn to identify the operation (sum or difference) and the numbers involved in the expression. The lesson concludes with examples that incorporate variables, and Professor Perez reminds viewers to double-check their arithmetic before writing the final word statement.

This video is the opposite of writing word statements in math. Sum and difference math expressions are translated into word statements. This can be tricky for some students, and many different problems are shown. Near the end of the video, some problems such as x + y = 5 are translated into the sum of x and y is 5.
I really think this video was helpfull on converting numerical prblems into word problems. i found it really helpfull how he begins the problem by questioning if its a sum, difference, quotion or product.
