2. Each terms of a certain sequence is greater than the term befor it. The difference between any two consecutive terms in the same sequence is always the same number. If the third and sixth terms of the sequence are 17 and 77, respectively, what is the 8th term?

3. |x-3|= 1/2

What is the least value of x that satisfies the equation above?

4. A four digit integer, WXYZ, in which W, X, Y, and Z each represent a different digit, is formed according to the following rules.

A. X= W+Y+Z

B. W= Y+1

C. Z= W-5

How much greater is 3 than 2? 50Percent greater.

17,17+n, 17+2n, 17+3n

17+3n=77 n=20

seventh: 97

eighth: 117

3. c can be 3.5, 2.5.

4. well, X>2 assuming w,y,or z is zero.

but W =1 of y=0

if z is zero, W=5, but in any case, W=>5

Try W=5, that makes y=4, and z=0, and X=9

5940

check this.

1) 2 out of 5 days it rained. 5 goes into 30 6 times, sooo, multiple 6 by 2, and you get 12 days it did not rain in April.

Apply that same concept to the 3 out of 5 days it does rain...you get 18 days it DID rain, so the answer would be 18 (days it rained) subtract 12 (days it didn't rain). Answer is it rained 6 more days than the amount of days it didn't rain
