Hi foreros! I'm translating a question on a math test and I'm having trouble with the answers. Here is the question: What is the meaning of the following expression? 8 – n A. A number increased by 8 B. A number decreased by 8 C. A number subtracted from 8 D. Eight subtracted from a number In a previous thread the "# increased by" was talked about but the problem comes when I get to the last option: ¿Qué significa la siguiente expresión? A. Un número más 8 B. Un número menos 8 C. Ocho menos un número D. Eight subtracted from a number My problem with translating it as más/menos is that it literally means a number plus 8, which gives the students a hint. In English the fact that it's written as "a number decreased by 8" is to challenge this students. Any ideas?
