the sum of a number and 3 times that number is 76. what is that number?
PLEASE HELP ME I DON'T GET IT!!!!!!!!
Mathematics is a language, so translate the English into "math"
let the number be x
"the sum of a number and 3 times that number is 76", .... what does "sum" mean?
x + 3x = 76
now solve it, it's easy.
huh?IM IN 6TH GRADE GEEZE!!!!!!!!
I would assume that a problem in algebra like you gave me would also mean that they teach you some algebra to start with.
I makes no sense having such questions if you haven't learned the proper tools to solve the problem.
i need the answer so that i can see the pattern which will help me solve the problem.
P.S: I HAVENT LEARED ALGEBRA!!!i don't know how to do algebra!
the number is 19
a number plus 3 times that number...
19 + 3x19
= 19 + 57 76
thank you for your help
