First, assign a variable to the unknown number: let number = x Now try to express in a mathematical way the information you are given about the number.: Since number = x twice the number = 2x 3 is subtracted from twice the number = 2x  3 three times the number = 3x 31 more than three times the number = 3x + 31 Since these two parts are equal, set them equal to each other: 2x  3 = 3x + 31 Solve for x.
