Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1add the 3 expressions x + 9x + x + 100 and this equals 1035 so we have x + 9x + x + 100 = 1035

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right so you just work out the other 2 numbers by plugging x = 85 into 9x and x=85 into x + 100
