Translating English to Algebra

Students learn to translate English to Algebra. For example, the statement "a job pays $10 per hour" can be translated to the expression 10h, where h represents the number of hours. And the question "If a bean stalk was 3 inches tall when it was planted, and it grows 2 inches per month, after how many months will the bean stalk be 25 inches tall?" can be translated to the equation 3 + 2m = 25, where m represents the number of months.
