    thank you oh so much.. means much

  • grade 10 math - ,

    so.. solving for x.. does not give a whole number?

    in this case, apparently not. Seems a bit odd, but that's so.

    I'm assuming your question can be parsed as

    distance between (2x) and (7x+80)

    That would indeed be the larger minus the smaller, or 5x+80
