Homework Help: Algebra

Posted by Celina on Friday, November 14, 2008 at 5:49pm.

Here's another problem I'm having a little trouble with:

A piece of string is 40 cm long. It is cut into three pieces. The longest piece is 3 times as long as the middle-sized piece, and the shortest piece is 23 cm shorter than the longest piece. Find the lengths of the three pieces.

What could be an equation I could write?

Thank you so much!
