Answer

5n + 5.6

Work Step by Step

"twice" = 2* "sum of a number and 2.8" = n + 2.8 "added to" = + "3 times the number" = 3*n Therefore, "Twice the sum of a number and 2.8, added to 3 times the number" translates to 2*(n + 2.8) + 3*n. Simplify the expression: 2(n + 2.8) + 3n = 2(n) + 2(2.8) + 3n = 2n + 5.6 + 3n = 5n + 5.6
