What number satisfies one-third of the number is 3 more than one-fourth of the number?
Let's first call the number x. We can rewrite the clue as an equation: x/3 = 3 + x/4 We can rewrite this as: x/3 - x/4 = 3 Now multiply the whole equation by 12, which is the least common multiple of 3 and 4 4x - 3x = 36
Finally: x = 36
How would i set up this equation Two consecutive numbers onefourth of the first number is one more than onefifth of the second number?
A solution is an answer which satisfies all the constraints posed in the problem. Sometimes there can be more than one solution to a problem, sometimes there are no solutions to a problem. For example the solution to "3x+4=13" is the value of x which satisfies the equation. Of course it's (13-4)/3=3. "Name a day of the week that begins with a T" has two solutions, since Tuesday and Thursday both begin with T. "What…
If one number exceeds twice another by three the difference of the two numbers is eight what are the two numbers?
* A - 2B= 3 * A - B = 8 (We don't know which of the numbers is the largest, so we'll try A first) If we subtract the lower equation from the upper, we get * 0A -1B = -5 ----- Therefore B = 5 * So A = 2(5) +3 = 13 So, 13 and 5 satisfies the first requirement, 13 is three more than twice 5, and the difference between 13…
There are more than a math term that use "order". They are: the cardinality or the number of elements in the set in group theory. the smallest positive integer n such that aⁿ = identity. a sub-ring of the ring that satisfies some conditions: That given ring is a ring which is finite-dimensional algebra over the rational number field. The sub-ring spans over the rational root field, such the product of rational number field and…
What term descrives a substance that is made when two or more different atoms bond together in a certain ratio?
99,999 is not a prime number because it has more than two factors and so therefore it is a composite number 99,999 is not a prime number because it has more than two factors 99,999 is not a prime number because it has more than two factors 99,999 is not a prime number because it has more than two factors
