A number divided by 12 is equal to 4 multiplied by the sum of that number and 3.

Step-by-step explanation:

The quotient of v and twelve is equal to the product of 4 and the sum of v and three.

Step-by-step explanation:

The expression v/12 can be described several ways:

• v divided by 12
• the ratio of v to 12
• the quotient of v and 12
• one-twelfth of v
• v over 12

The product 4(v+3) can also be described several ways. The trick is to pick one that is not ambiguous.

• the product of 4 and 3 more than v (could mean 4·3 +v)
• 4 times the quantity v plus 3 (could mean 4v +3)
• the quantity v plus 3 multiplied by 4 (could mean v +3·4)
• 4 times the sum of v and 3

The verbal expression written above is among the least ambiguous. (The least ambiguous way to write it is: v/12 = 4(v+3).)
