One number is 3 times another number. If 17 is added to each, the first resulting number is twice the second resulting number. Find the two numbers.
x = one number
3x = other number {one number is 3 times another} x + 17 = one number after adding 17 3x + 17 = other number after adding 17 x + 17 = 2(3x + 17) {after adding 17 to each, the first resulting number is twice the second resulting number} x + 17 = 6x + 34 5x = 17 x = 3.4 3x = 10.2 One number is 3.4 The other number is 10.2 Ask Algebra House
