Two numbers add to twenty-seven more than the opposite of the smaller number. The numbers differ by three. What is the larger number?
The shortest side of a triangle has length 16 inches. The perimeter of the triangle is nineteen less than three times the longest side.The remaining side is eight inches shorter than the longest side. What are the side lengths of the triangle?
I am a three digit number. The sum of my first two digits is 15, and the sum of my last two digits is 8. The sum of my first and last digits is 7. What number am I?
The difference between two numbers is twice the smaller number. The smaller number is 10 less than the larger number. Find the smaller number.
The price of an antique table varies directly with age of the antique (in years) and with the surface area (in square feet). The price varies inversely with the number of scratches on the surface. A table which is 120 years old, is 3 feet x 8 feet , and has n scratches on the surface, costs $4,320. A table which is 140 years old, is 4 feet x 8 feet, and has n - 1 scratches on the surface, costs $7,680. If a table 150 years old, which is 4 feet x 6 feet , costs $10,800, how many scratches are on the surface?
The sum of two pairs of consecutive integers is 100. the difference between the largest and the smallest of these four integers is 9 less than the average of the four integers.
Find all four integers.
If the sum of an integer and the next consecutive integer is added to the sum of another integer and its next consecutive odd integer, the result is 71.
If the smaller of the two numbers is subtracted from twice the larger, the result is 29. What are the two numbers?
The sum of two numbers is six more than twice the smaller number, and if the larger number is multiplied by three, the result is ten less than seven times the smaller number. What is the larger number?
The cost of a textbook is directly proportional to the number of math problems it contains, and inversely proportional to the number of authors who wrote the book. A textbook which contains 200 problems, and was written by 3 authors costs $5 less than a textbook which contains 150 problems, and was written by 2 authors. What is the cost of a textbook containing 450 problems, and written by 4 authors?
