2-36.

Use the numbers $2$, $3$, and $4$ and the operations (mathematical processes) of addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division to create three different numerical expressions with three different values. One of the expressions should have a value of $14$.

To begin finding answers to this problem, think about the different numbers you can make by mathematically combining $2$, $3$, and $4$.

Remember that one of your answers must have a value of $14$. Can you find the two numbers whose product is nearest to $14$?

Timmy came up with the following expression using $2$, $3$, and $4$.

$2(3)+4$
What is the value of Timmy's expression?

Using Timmy's expression as a starting point, write two more expressions of your own.
