david gained 14 pounds over the winter. he went on a diet and lost 26 pounds. then he regainged 5 pounds and weighed 179 pounds. how much did he weigh orignally ?

    Go backwards:

    "regainged 5 pounds and weighed 179 pounds."
    so he weiged 179-5=174 pounds.

    "and lost 26 pounds" to weigh 174 pounds,
    so he used to weigh 174+26=200 pounds

    "david gained 14 pounds over the winter." so he weighed 200-14=186 pounds.

    Check 186+14-26+5=179 pounds

    If you are doing algebra, then
    X+14-26+5=179
    Solve for X.
