#### Answer

$4x-3=29$

#### Work Step by Step

"Less than" tells us we are going to subtract. In the absence of commas "3 less than" tells us to subtract 3 from whatever follows. "4 times a number" means to multiply a number by 4, which can be written as 4x. "Gives" tells us to put an equal sign between the expressions before and after the word "gives".
