    In equation form, it'll be written as
    (x+9)/2=3x

    Help??
    Break it down The first part says

    The sum of x and 9
    This tells you that you add x and 9 which gives x+9

    Then it says
    divided by 2
    which means you divide the first expression by 2 giving you
    \[\frac{(x+9)}{2}\]

    Lastly all you do is put iit equal to x because it says

    qauntity is eqaul to 3x
    Therefore, your final expression will be equal to
    \[\frac{(x+9)}{2}=3x\]
