Let's first call the number x. We can rewrite the clue as an equation: x/3 = 3 + x/4 We can rewrite this as: x/3 - x/4 = 3 Now multiply the whole equation by 12, which is the least common multiple of 3 and 4 4x - 3x = 36

Finally: x = 36

How would i set up this equation Two consecutive numbers onefourth of the first number is one more than onefifth of the second number?

Suppose the first number is x. Then the second number is x+1. A fourth of the first number is x/4 A fifth of the second number is (x+1)/5 So the equation is x/4 = (x+1)/5 + 1 Multiplying though by 20: 5x = 4x + 4 + 20 = 4x + 24 Subtracting 4x from both sides: x = 24

What is the solution in math?

A solution is an answer which satisfies all the constraints posed in the problem. Sometimes there can be more than one solution to a problem, sometimes there are no solutions to a problem. For example the solution to "3x+4=13" is the value of x which satisfies the equation. Of course it's (13-4)/3=3. "Name a day of the week that begins with a T" has two solutions, since Tuesday and Thursday both begin with T. "What number is bigger than 4 but less than 3" has no solutions.
