Write a verbal expression for each algebraic expression.

$w-24$

The verbal expression is **24 is decreased from $\mathit{w}$**.

An algebraic expression is an expression that comprises sums and products of variables and numbers. For example, $2a$ and $\frac{1}{2}b$.

If the operation in algebraic expression is ‘–’, then the verbal phrases that could be used to translate the algebraic expression to verbal expression are less than, subtracted from, difference, decreased by, and minus.

Hence, a verbal expression from the given algebraic expression is “24 is decreased from $w$”.

Therefore, the verbal expression to represent the algebraic expression is “24 is decreased from $w$”.
