twice the difference of three times a number and eight
three times a number decreased by eleven
A + 2a = 3a
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)).
It is 0.722... recurring.
n + 2n = 3n
Let the number be x and so 2x+3x = 5x
The number is 7.
What is the quotient of twice the number and three
