One number is five more than another, and their sum is three less than three times the smaller. Find the numbers. If x represents the smaller number, which equation could be used to solve for x? A.x 2 + 5 = 3x - 3 B.2x + 5 = 3x - 3 C. 2x + 5 = 3(x - 3)

    its is not c, because they say "three less than three times the smaller" not "three less than three less than the smaller"....so the sum will look like this ~> 3x - 3
