Homework Help: math 117

Posted by Diana on Wednesday, July 11, 2007 at 10:15pm.

If one half of one integer is subtracted from three fifths of the next consecutive integer, the difference is 3. What are the two integers?

i got 24 and 25.

(3/5 of 25) - (1/2 of 24) = 3

(n+1)*3/5 - 1/2 n =3 Right?

I will be happy to critique your thinking. I suggest start by multiplying each side by 10.

whoops, sorry bob
