# 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

### What is the solution in math?

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…

### In math term what does order mean?

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…
