2.1 In Words
In this section, we will show you how you can illustrate algebra in different ways.  We will go through two mathematical problems in four different ways:
• In words
We begin by expressing the problem in words.

• Showing with figures
A good way to try and illustrate a problem is by using pictures or figures.

• Using tables
Here you can try to put different numbers in a table and see if we get a pattern.

• Stating as an algebraic expression
We want to in the end be able to write a formula for the problem, and it is this that we call for writing an algebraic expression.

We begin by expressing the problem in words:
