no ideas on any of these? Even with the hints?
1.) 14n = -28
6.) m = 2t+5
m+t = 65, so t=65-m
m = 2(65-m)+5

2) 4x = x - 78
3) b + r = 330 and b = r -14
These could be combinte by replacing the b with r - 14
r - 14 + r= 330
4) A = E + 6
A + E = 32
5) C = 3M
C + M = 52
6) n = 1st integer, n + 1 = 2nd and n+2 = the 3rd integer
sum is: n + n + 1 + n + 2= 105
7. Consecutive odd or consecutive even integers differ by 2. Example, 1, 3, 5 or 2, 4, 6
With this hint, can you figure this out. It is similar to 6.
