I'm assuming you are trying to write an equation for that English phrase "4 plus the product of a number 14"

However, as written it doesn't make sense. A product is always the result of multiplying *two* numbers but you just have the number 14.

I think you meant to say, "4 plus the product of a number *and* 14"

I'll use 'x' to represent the unknown number.

"4 plus..."

4 +

"... the product of..."

4 + (?? * ??)

"...a number and 14."

4 + (x * 14)
