Algebraic expression translation: $6x-(-2x)$ Simplified form: $8x$

#### Work Step by Step

Let $x$ = the unknown number The product of six and a number: $6x$ Negative two times the number: $-2x$ The difference between the product of six and a number and negative two times the number: $6x - (-2x)$ Simplifying gives: $=6x - (-2x) \\=6x+2x \\=8x$
