  1. Five less than (subtracting 5) two times a number (multiplying unknown number, x, by 2) is equal to 7. Thus, the algebraic expression would be:
    2x - 5 = 7

  2. The number is -2 // Math [n is equivalent to number]: 2n -10 = 7n
                                                                                        2n = 7n + 10
                                                                                        -5n = 10
                                                                                        -n = 2
                                                                                        n = -2
