I will represent "a number" as x.


I would assume that the question wants you to translate words into an algebraic expression. The phrase "the sum of" indicates the addition operator. When using "the sum of," you generally separate the 2 things that will be added with "and."


This means that the algebraic expression represented by the phrase "the sum of a number and 19" is \(x+19\).
