too many years!

if you divide this number by 2, you will get 3 multiplied by 6. Subtract 3 groups of 3 and you will get 3 multipliepd by 9.

what is the number

here is what we did

6 divided by 2 = 3

6x6 = 36

36- (3x3) = 27

Well first 3 x 6= 18

so multiplied by two to get your answer

18x2=36

to check use the second part of the problem:

3x9=27

36-27=9

subtract three groups of three (9)

9-9=0 so we have the correct answer

No the answer is 36. Try plugging it into the problem. 36 divided by 2 is 18, which is 6 times 3. Then if you add (the opposite of subtracting) 3 groups of 3 (nine) from 3 multiplied by nine (27) you get 36
