Thanks for explaining how to convert the question into a mathematical statement.

Huumm. Mathematically. Speaking right

Although this is a seemingly simple problem, it is actually quite hard.

Since the question asks for a number 23 more than 45, we look for clues how to proceed.

Since we see the words 'more than', this reminds us of addition.

For example, a number 2 more than 5 is 7, and a number 4 more than 2 is 6.

This leads us to a lemma:

The number x more than y is x+y.

Proof: Consider a number line. Since we want the point y spaces to the right of x, we add y.

Therefore, we seek 23+45.

There are many ways to compute this.

For example, $23+45=(20+3)+(40+5)=(20+40)+(3+5)=60+8= \boxed{68}$

Do not get disencouraged if you cannot do this problem at first glance: despite the solving of 1901 people, this problem is still quite difficult!

You're welcome! I hope addition will not be a main problem in the future!

$23+45=68$ .

Hmm...

1) Be clear. And then, be brief. 2) Include motivation. 3) Generalize the problem, if possible.

Let the number be x, so according to question x = 23 + 45 so, x = 68

if we let x = the number

requirement: x is 23 more than 45

in basic algebra, the phrase "more than" means ADDITION, so this problem can simply solve by having the following equation:

```
x = 23 + 45
x = 68, which is a number 23 more than 45
```

Because the number is 23 more than 45, simply add 45 with 23, and we get: 23+45=68
