Let the middlesized piece be x.
Then: 2x = longest piece and x10 = shortest piece.
Therefore:
x + 2x + x  10 = 70
Can you take it from here?
(Hint: solve for x, then be sure to list the length of the 3 pieces!)

SOLUTION: If the middle of three consecutive even integers is added to 100, the result is 42 more than the sum of the largest and twice the smallest. Find the smallest integer
