If 5 is added to a number and the sum is tripled, the result is 27 more than the number

Again we translate first

sum= answer for addition

result means equals.

More than means addition.

tripled is 3 times

a number means pick a variable, I'm going with q this time.

If 5 is added to q and the addition of them multiplied by 3 this equals is 27 added to q

So we get:

(5+q)*3=27+q
