n + 2n = 3n
2x - 16 = 3x/18
twice the difference of three times a number and eight
It is: 3x = 2x+8 and the value of x is 8
three times a number decreased by eleven
There are two possible (and different) answers: 2x + 3y = 12 or 2*(x + 3y)= 12 The first one is (twice a number) increased by (three times another) The second is twice (a number increased by (three times another)).
2*(x + 21) = 3*abs(x - 5) => x = -5.4 or x = 57.
Let the number be x and so 2x+3x = 5x
26 26 + 26 = 52 52 + 1 = 53
The number is 7.
Three times the difference of a and m divided by twice their sum is equal to 6(a squared - m squared). 3(a - m)/2(a + m)
2 x = 8 + 4x
What is the quotient of twice the number and three
My number is 11.
Joe is 10 years older than James. In 8 years, twice Joe's age will equal three times James's age. How old is each now?
let the number be n. Then: 2n = 3n ⇒ 2n - 2n = 3n - 2n ⇒ 0 = n ie, the number is zero.
the quotient of twice a number and six is.... 2x/6 four less than three times the same number is .... 3x-4 So the equation would be 2x/6=3x-4
twice a number means a number times 2
Let the number be x and so if 2x = 12 then x = 6 and so 3x = 18
if the product of a number and -7 is reduced by 3, the result is 33 less than twice the opposite of the number. What is the number?
