Let the three consecutive numbers be x, x+1, x+2.

Now, the smallest is 57 less than three times the largest...

=> x + 57 = 3(x + 2)

=> x + 57 = 3x + 6

=> 2x = 57 - 6

=> 2x = 51

=>** x = 25.5**

=> x, x+1, x+2 = 25.5, 26.5, 27.5

So, the three consecutive numbers are __ 25.5, 26.5, 27.5__.

Let x be the smallest number.

Let x + 2 be the other number (consecutive even integer)

Now to translate the rest;)

three times the smaller 3(x)

19 more -19

sum of the two integers - (x) +( x+2)

Pulling it together,

3x -19 = x + x +2

collect like terms

3x - 19 = 2x + 2

Put all the constants on one side by adding 19 to both sides.

3x - 19 +19= 2x + 2 + 19

3x = 2x +21

Subtract 2x from both sides to have all the x's on one side.

3x - 2x = 2x +21 - 2x

x = 21

The other number is 21 + 2, or 23

Check:three times the smaller = 3 x 21 = 63

sum of the two integers = 21 + 23 or 44

is 63 at least 19 more than 44

Let x + 2 be the other number (consecutive even integer)

Now to translate the rest;)

three times the smaller 3(x)

19 more -19

sum of the two integers - (x) +( x+2)

3x - 19 +19= 2x + 2 + 19

3x = 2x +21

Subtract 2x from both sides to have all the x's on one side.

3x - 2x = 2x +21 - 2x

x = 21

The other number is 21 + 2, or 23

sum of the two integers = 21 + 23 or 44

is 63 at least 19 more than 44

In what sequence would you like them? In English alphabetical order they are eighty-one, nine, one, three, two-hundred-forty-three. From largest to smallest they are 243, 81, 9, 3, 1.

There are 120 different ways to order five numbers, and a sequence can be constructed for each one of them.

stupid question (nobody writes numbers this way 000.18)

they are all the same except 18.0 which is the largest

0.18 = .180 = 00.18 = 000.18 = 0.18

they are all the same except 18.0 which is the largest

0.18 = .180 = 00.18 = 000.18 = 0.18

The answer is 17, 19 and 21. Hope this helps.

The hardest part of a word problem is translating it into the equation or equations you need. This one needs just one equation.

Let N = the smallest number. Since they are consecutive, the next ones will be N+2 and N+4. (It doesn't matter that they are odd, just that each one is 2 greater than the one before.)

So, N = the smallest number and N+4 = the largest. Translate the problem (3 times the smallest, N, decreased by 7, equals twice the largest, N+4) into numbers:

3N - 7 = 2 (N+4)

Then it's simple to find N:

3N - 7 = 2N +8

3N - 2N = 8 + 7

N = 15

The three numbers then are 15, 17, 19. Check the answer by seeing if they fit the original problem. 3 X 15 = 45, 45 - 7 = 38, 2 X 19 = 38, so we got the right values.

Let x be the smallest integer, then x+2 is the middle and x+4 the largest one. Resolve the equation

x + 2 * ( x + 4 ) = 5 * ( x + 2 ) - 24

=> x = 11

The three numbers are therefore 11, 13, and 15. The fact they are odd is irrelevant for finding the answer.

x + 2 * ( x + 4 ) = 5 * ( x + 2 ) - 24

=> x = 11

The three numbers are therefore 11, 13, and 15. The fact they are odd is irrelevant for finding the answer.

Generally speaking the conditioner or rinse aid goes in the smallest of the three.

The powder or detergent goes in the largest of the three.

You do not normally put anything in the remaining compartment.

Please rate my solution.

Thanks.

Most GSM registered companies have SIM cards which have PIN numbers/codes.

Failure to input PIN number three consecutive times automatically take you to PUK 1 depending on your provider.

Failure to input the PUK codes three consecutive times automatically rejects your SIM card and will not be recognized in the system.
