2 more than the quotient of x and 8.
Work Step by Step
Two things are being divided, so we say the phrase "the quotient of" and then list the two things being divided, in this case x and 8. Note, because we want the resulting fraction to be x/8 and not 8/x, we list the x first, saying "the quotient of x and 8." However, the expression shows that 2 is being added to x/8, so we denote this by saying the phrase "2 more than" the quotient of x and 8.
