A 75 foot tree trunk is cut into three pieces The longest piece is three times the smallest piece and the other piece is 5 feet longer than the smaller piece Find the length of each piece?

Let p be the size of the smallest piece. Then we know that it (p) plus the middle piece (p + 5) and the longest piece (3 x p) adds up to 75. p + (p+5) + 3p = 75 => 2p + 5 + 3p = 75 => 5p = 75 - 5 => 5p = 70 => p = 14 So the smallest piece is p = 14 ft. The middle piece is p + 5 = 19 ft. And the largeset peice is 3p = 42 ft. Adding the sizes to check: 14 + 19 + 42 = 75

Is 16 gauge steel bigger than 14 gauge steel?

GAUGE , is one inch thick of steel or metal. So, take this one inch thick of steel sheet and cut it into 12 equal thickness sheets , you get a 12 gauge steel sheet. Similarly, take this one inch thick of steel sheet and cut it into 14 equal thickness sheets , you get a 14 gauge steel sheet. and so on . So, a 12 gauge steel sheet is thicker than 14 gauge , 14 is thicker than 16 , 16 is thicker than 18 and so on. Wrong!!! See my discussion on this...
