Second Number: 2x + 5 (Five more than twice the other)

Mathematical Sentence/Equation:

(x) + (2x+5) = 36

3x + 5 = 36

3x = 36 - 5

3x = 31

x = 31/3 or 10

ANSWER:

A) NO. This is not a quadratic equation, because the leading term, 3x, is raised only to one or has the power/exponent of 1, that is, it is a first degree polynomial. Quadratic is a second-degree polynomial.

B) Mathematical Sentence:

Simplified:

3x + 5 = 36
