**MathMate**, Thursday, October 15, 2009 at 8:47pmGo 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.
