## Step 1. Algebraic Expression.

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

## Step 2. Verbal expression for algebraic expression.

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.

## Step 3. Translate to verbal expression.
