    What is expression?

    An expression is a combination of terms that are combined by using mathematical operations such as subtraction, addition, multiplication, and division.

    According to the question

    Central High School plays Eastern High School in a basketball game.

    Central High School score before the three-pointer represented by c .

    Eastern had double the score of Central before Central scored a three-pointer as the game ended.

    i.e, Eastern's total score in expression:

    Eastern = 2 *  Central's score

    Eastern = 2c

    Central's total score in expression:

    Central = c+3

    Now,

    The total points scored in the game as a variable expression are:

    = Central +  Eastern

    = c + 3 + 2c

    = 2c  + c + 3

    or

    = 3c + 3  

    Hence, the total points scored in the game as a variable expression are

    3c + 3   or  2c  + c + 3
