The five integers are: x x+2 x+4 x+6 x+8
The sum of the two smallest is x + x+2 or 2x+2
That sum, 2x+2 is 50 less than the sum of the other three. The sum of the other three is 3x+18 So we have 2x+2=3x+18-50

Can you solve that?
ya give me a min and I'll tell you the answer
x=-34
I got 34 but that is not an odd integer.
Are you sure the problem said odd?
my mistake it says even
Did you find you mistake in getting -34?
3x+18-50=2x+2
3x+34=2x
34=-1x
x=-34
3x+18-50=2x+2 3x-32 = 2x=2 3x=2x+34 x=34
you didn't move the two from the other side cuz 18-50 is -32 then plus 2 is -30
wait I see what you did

got it
Good girl!!
A man is currently 26yrs older than his son. 12yrs before the current time, the man will be twice as old as his son. what is the current age of the father?
x= son's age now x+26 = man's age now x-12= son's age 12 years ago x+26-12=man's age 12 years ago=x+14 x+14=2(x-12)
Can you solve it?
x=52
i got 38
okay what did I do wrong?
2x+52=2x
28+24=52
\[x+14=2x-24\]
isn't there two x+14? or just that one?
|dw:1327773113418:dw|
So the son is 38, the father is 38+26 or 64 Twelve years the son was 26 and the father was 52 And 52 is twice 26 just like the problem says.
wait soo I got the right answer to begin with?
If you said the son is 38 you did. Is that what you said?
I said the dad is 52
Is 38+26 equal to 52?
guess I was wrong
12 years ago the father was 52. He is now 64 and the problem asks how old the father is now.
of course
A woman is currently 21yrs older than her daughter. Eleven yrs before current time the daughter was 2/3 as old as her mother. What is hte mother's current age? tell me if I got this partly right........ x+21= daughter's current age x-2/3-11= daughter's age eleven yrs ago
Start out with x = daughter's age now
How old is her mother right now?
doesn't say
wait lolx+21 is the mother's age now
can you help me formi it into an equation
so how old was the daughter 11 years ago?
x-2/3-11
eleven yrs ago she was 2/3rds her mothers age
How old are you?
Come on. It's not a hard question.
me?
yes. I'm trying to help you understand these problems. Could you please just answer the question. It's not a hard one. If you want to make up a number I don't care. I'm not really interested in how old you are.
okay give me some slack here...... ME and math don't get along that well
I'm a freshman in college
That is NOT a number. How old is your roommate?
ya me and roommates don't work parents paying for private rm here's a number
19
How old was she 11 years ago?
I prob didn't set the equation up right cuz I didn't get a whole # i got-98/3
x+21=x-2/3-11+x
x= daughter's age now x+21=mother's age now x-11=daughter's age 11 years ago. x+21-11=x+10 = mother's age 11 years ago. x-11=2/3(x+10)
Solve it.
x=55
where did the x+10 come fromthough
