I am having difficulty writing the expression that best represents the phrase "twice the quotient of 50 and the sum of a number Y and 8"

I am having trouble with this section, are there any references that will better explain it to me?

first - what is "the sum of a number Y and 8"

then "quotient of 50 and that (that meaning the expression above)"

then "twice that (that meaning the expression above)"
