The sum of two numbers is eleven less than four times the smaller number. The difference between the numbers is five more than the smaller number. What is the larger number?
SolutionIn order to make it feasible for teachers to use these problems in their classwork, no solutions are publicly visible, so students cannot simply look up the answers. If you would like to view the solutions to these problems, you must have a Virtual Classroom subscription.
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 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?
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?
Manny is climbing to the top of skyscraper, starting from the ground floor (Floor #1). There are 12 steps between each floor. When he reaches the landing for the nth floor, the number of floors he has left to climb is equal to a quarter of the number of steps he's already climbed. When he reaches the landing for the kth floor, the number of floors he has left to climb is equal to one sixth the number of steps he's already climbed.
When Manny has climbed halfway to the top of the skyscraper, the number of steps he has climbed is a three digit number, with the digits in descending order from left to right.
If the skyscraper has at least 40 floors, and no more than 110 floors, how many stairs does Manny climb in all?
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 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?
My neighbor has both chickens and roosters. He has a total of 31 birds. The number of chickens is ten more than twice the number of roosters. How many chickens does he have?
