I am translating a high school math quiz for an English Language Learning student whose native language is Chinese. One of the sections on this quiz involves writing algebraic expressions for English statements. I have been able to use basic web translation tools for some of the questions, but I am having issues with the statement "14 less than the result of 2 times y," which would have the answer 2y-14.

    Just from curiosity, but isnt math language the same around the world? I think 2y-14 will do. Nov 6 '19 at 3:23
  • He want's to know how to express that verbally. Nov 6 '19 at 20:11

I would say : “比y的两倍小14”.
