Answer choice $B$
"Two more than twice a number is the number tripled." Let's work backwards, and focus on each part "Two more than twice a number 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐧𝐮𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐝" When you write this part mathematically, you get $=3n$ So far, we have $? = 3n$ Now let's focus on the other part "𝐓𝐰𝐨 𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧 𝐭𝐰𝐢𝐜𝐞 𝐚 𝐧𝐮𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫 is the number tripled" When you write this part mathematically, you get $2n + 2$ So now, we have $\boxed{2n +2 = 3n}$
