$5-3y$

#### Work Step by Step

To rewrite a word phrase as an expression, translate each part of the phrase. $\underbrace{5}\ \underbrace{minus}\ \underbrace{the\ product\ of\ y\ and\ 3}$ $\ \ 5\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ -\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ (y\times3)$ "$y\times3$" is normally written as 3y, so the algebraic expression is: $5-3y$
