    Let x=the first number Then 5x=the second number And 5x+12=the third number Now adding the above you get: x+5x+5x+12=89 11x+12=89 11x=77 x=7 This is the first number 5x=(5)(7)=35 This is the second number 5x+12=35+12+47 This is the third number

    The third number should be written as 5x+12=35+12=47. The plus 47 should be equals 47.

    gw2011 is right, I read the problem wrong and calculated the third number being 12 times rather than 12 more.
