### How do you write in an algebraic expression the square of 6 more than x?

There is actually more than an interpretation of that statement.
"The square of 6 more than x" can be interpreted as x + 6² =
x + 36. Otherwise, if the statement means "the square of the sum
of x and 6", then the expression is (x + 6)²
Remember that:
"more than" means that you add a value by another.
"the square of" means that you are squaring something.

### What is an expression for the length of a rectangle is 2 less than three times its width w?

When you are writing an equation from a verbal description, you
almost always just write it as you read it. But "less than" is an
exception to the rule, as it would follow, not precede, the other
term in the expression. "Is" always means "=".
Example: "The length is 2 more than 4 times its width" would be:
L = 2 + 4W, or you could also write it as L = 4W + 2.
Example: "The length is 5 less than the width" would be: L = W -
5. You cannot write it any other way.
By looking at these two examples you should be able to answer
your question.
