**Steve**, Saturday, September 15, 2012 at 11:11pmthe number is abcba

c = a+5

b = 2a

2a+2b+c = 14

(a,b,c) = (1,3,6)

the number is 13631

Note the possibly confusing "2 times greater" which means "3 times as much".

Instead of using algebra, if we just start guessing, then

if we let a=1, that makes c=6 and 2a+c=8, so dividing that up equally into 2b, b=3.
