Let the number be ABC, which is between 150 and 200, so A=1. (minimum is 151 and maximum is 199)

A+B+C = 12

so 1+B+C=12

and B-C=5

solve to find B and C

Please post a new question if you want your question to be seen by teachers. Do not add it as a followup to an answer to someone else's question.

When adding fractions, make sure they have a common denominator. Then you can add the numerators.
