IF the question means: What number, multiplied by 2, and reducing the answer by 9, gives a result that is greater than 11?

ANSWER: Any number greater than 10.

Let's try 11.

2 x 11 = 22.

22 - 9 = 13, which is greater than 11.

But if we try 10 ...

2 x 10 = 20.

20 - 9 = 11, but 11 is not greater than 11! So we need a higher number than 10.

Try it for yourself with ANY number greater than 10!

Alternative answer.

If the question means "What number decreased by 9, and then doubled, produces a number greater than 11?"...

... then work it out this way, working backwards:

What number is greater than 11?

We could say '12' is greater than 11.

Half of 12 is 6. Add 9 to 6 = 15.

So, now, let's try 15.

15 decreased by 9 is 6.

Twice that number is .... 12 (2 x 6), which is greater than 11!

But this would work for ANY number from 15 upwards!

It is if: * the numerator is greater than half the denominator. * twice the numerator is greater than the denominator. * the denominator is less than half the numerator. * twice the denominator is less than the numerator. * the decimal equivalent is gretaer than 0.5. * if you subtract 1/2, the answer is positive. * if you subtract it from 1/2 the answer is negative. * the square of the number is between greater than 1/4. There are many more.

Let the number be x and so: 2x+3 > 49

The question is not phrased appropriately enough to derive meaning from it. Taken literally, you wish the number 87 to have a number subtracted from it. And that number is to be three times a number that is greater than 165. 166 is greater. And three times that is 498. And 87 minus 498 is negative 411. However, there an infinite number of numbers that are greater than 165. That was the first.

ANY number greater than the number before the greater than, so if the answer is greater than 7 then one solution is 7.00000000000000000000000000000000001
