the sum of three numbers is 64. the second number is 3 less than the first number, the third number is 11 less than twice the first. what are the three numbers?
One option for comparing two numbers is to subtract the first number from the second number. If the result is less than zero, the first number is larger. If the result is greater than zero, the second number is larger. If the result is zero, the numbers are equal. Another option (for positive numbers) would be to divide the first number by the second number. If the result is greater than one, the first number is larger. If the result is less than one, the second number is larger. If the result is one, the numbers are equal. This rule flips if you are comparing negative numbers.
Assuming the two numbers are positive integers, the two numbers must be 10 and 7: 10 + 7 = 17 10 - 7 = 3
There are several options. The first is 200 less than the second. The first is half of the second. The first is the square root of the second when the latter is expressed as a percentage. and others.
The GCF of 2 numbers can be less than either number.
13 and 26
Compare the integer part. If that is equal, compare the first decimal. If the first decimal digits are equal, compare the second decimal digit, etc. Actually, in this case, negative numbers are less than positive numbers, so that is the first thing you should check.
