7.)The sum of three consecutive integers is 108. Which equation would be used to solve this word problem? (HINT: The equation has been simplified some...)

3x = 108

3(x+3) = 108

3x + 1 = 108

#7 is badly written

If x is the smallest number, then

x + (x+1) + (x+2) = 3x+3 = 108

If is the middle number, then

(x-1) + x + (x+1) = 3x = 108

In no case are the other two choices valid.

For the others, just put the words into symbols and solve. For example,

#6: m = 5+2t, so

(5+2t)+t=65

3t+5=65

3t=60

t=20

m=45
